At Gravel Hill we aim to provide an inspiring, practical art curriculum which builds on children’s early creative experiences and desire to express. We intend to give the children the opportunity to learn about and explore a wide variety of materials, skills and techniques. Throughout their time at Gravel Hill all children will have the opportunity to explore great artists, craft makers and designers and have a good understanding of the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
The art curriculum is progressive and allows children to build on skills, knowledge and techniques year upon year. It also aims to develop creativity, set challenges, engage and inspire children and equip them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. We aim to make links to the wider curriculum where relevant, making strong links with DT, maths and science in particular.
