“Every artist was first an amateur.” – Ralph Waldo Emmerson
At Gainsborough Primary School we believe that art inspires creativity, imagination and inventiveness. We believe that art gives our pupils the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to engage and express responses to ideas and experiences. It fires their imagination and is a fundamental means of personal expression.
Art should enable children to express and communicate what they see, feel and think. Children should experiment and explore their ideas, use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials, techniques and processes. Self-evaluation of work is encouraged and children are taught how to be reflective & analytical to achieve their goals. We believe every child has an inner artist waiting to be unveiled!
Art lessons are taught on a weekly basis by our very own in-house art teacher.
