As part of the exciting curriculum on offer here at Whitemoor, all children in years 1, 2, 3 and 4 receive a quality art lesson each week. Our specialist art teacher, Mr Cook, spent four years at art college studying graphic design and is a former primary school headteacher.
During our lessons, the children learn and develop basic key skills such as drawing, painting, printmaking and collage and also study the work of well known artists such as Picasso and Van Gogh. Lessons are planned around topics such as ‘landscapes’, ‘portraiture’ and ‘still life’. The children have opportunity to use a wide range of art materials such as clay and mod roc and produce work of a very high standard.
In addition to our work in school, Art is a great activity to get involved in outside of school. You could visit one of Nottingham’s amazing art galleries or make a model or draw a picture.
