At Cubitt Town Junior School, each half term, we teach the equivalent of one hour a week of art lessons, within which we develop children’s art knowledge and skills. Art lessons will allow children to work creatively, develop their techniques, experiment with materials and increase their awareness of a range of art forms.
Each year the children will build upon six main art strands: drawing, painting, printing, collage, sculpture, textiles. Alongside this, children will learn about great artists and artwork throughout history.
Throughout their time at Cubitt Town, children will be able to take part in art competitions both inside the school and with wider organisations. Children will have the opportunity to widen their knowledge of art through school trips to museums and galleries. Within school, children will have the chance to work alongside parents on art projects; some children may also get the experience of working with artists in wider organisations.
