Here at Highburton First School we believe strongly that art provides a special way of understanding and responding to the world. We use a variety of teaching and learning styles to encourage confidence in all our children and encourage appreciation of art and artists both past and present. During their time at school the art curriculum enables our children to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form and pattern and use different materials and processes in order to produce their own work.
The following is a quote from an artist we study in school called Henry Moore. We think it sums up how important teaching and creating art is and its importance throughout the curriculum in helping us to learn about and understand the world in which we live.
