Art and Design

Our Vision for ‘Art’ 

Art has no borders! It allows you to communicate all over the world.  Through art children have an excellent opportunity to communicate their inner thoughts and feelings through a range of media. It is a known fact that art is a therapeutic experience for many enabling children to express themselves as well as promoting physical co-ordination and wellbeing. It allows children of all abilities to participate and express themselves in a safe, stimulating environment. We want our children to know that Art and Design has contributed to our culture and understanding of history and the world.

Here is the Art and Design Intent

At South Petherwin Primary School, children have the opportunity to take part in a range of artistic activities. We believe that it is really important to develop children’s creativity, imagination and improve their self-esteem. We do this through exploring famous artists, architects and designers, and developing skills in painting, drawing and sculpture. We support and use local artists to enthuse and inspire our children. We aim to give all children the confidence to express themselves through a range of mediums by having opportunities to experiment with different material and to practice art and design techniques.
