Art At Eastrop
At Eastrop Infant School we are committed to providing all children with learning opportunities to engage in art activities. We believe that teaching and learning in art is important because it stimulates creativity, imagination and inventiveness.
We want to give our children the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express their responses to ideas and experiences in a visual or tactile form. Art sparks imagination and is a fundamental means of personal expression. As children progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. While it is essentially a practical subject, we believe art should also provide opportunities for reflection and, with increasing sensitivity, children should acquire the ability to make informed, critical responses to their own work and that of others.
“Art is not just a subject to learn, but an activity that you can practise with your hands, your eyes, your whole personality.” Quentin Blake.
