Subject Vision Art

Our Vision for Art at St George's

‘Let all that you do be done in Love’ 1 Corinthians 16:14

The example of Jesus Christ and the Good news that he brings inspire St George’s school to be a place of hope and a caring and inclusive community in which we all love to learn and learn to love

‘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

Art stimulates creativity, imagination and inventiveness. It enables children to communicate what they see, feel and think. Children experiment with their ideas, their use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes. At St George’s we want our children to learn to be artists. Our aim is for pupils to develop a passion and commitment to the subject and be exposed to a variety of artists and cultures to broaden their knowledge and experiences.

Year 6 have looking at boats. They looked at photographs as well as some artwork, examining what features they liked about the pictures. Next, they experimented with drawing their own boats and with colours and textures to be used in their own piece of artwork.

As well as the boats that go on the water, they have also been looking at the water itself.

They started to experiment with different materials to create images, patterns and textures of water. It was amazing how many different colours, shades and textures they could see when they looked at other artist's work.
