At St Anne's, we like children to experience art in a range of different formats including drawing, painting, sculpture and collage. The children use their sketch books to develop their artistic skills and to express themselves through various art projects. Their sketchbook annotations, reflections and use of subject specific vocabulary showcase their learning and understanding.
Children are given opportunities to explore the works of famous artists and their impact on the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation, as well as how Art and Design reflects and shapes our history. At St Anne's, we look for opportunities for children to develop a real understanding and appreciation of the world, learning from the best that has been developed and said.
Here are the artists we learn about:
Be inspired by learning from the best!
