At Tudor Primary School, we understand the importance of creating positive attitudes towards art from an early age. We also understand the importance of giving children access to a wide range of skills and aspects of art and design. Often, the phrase ‘I can’t draw’ is echoed in many children before they have even had a go. We believe here at Tudor that the child should be able to find an aspect of art that suits them, this is achieved by a broad range of art being taught regularly.
We also believe that positive attitudes towards art for children should be developed by staff who are confident in the art curriculum and how to deliver this in a lesson. With these two important ideas in place the students at Tudor Primary will leave the school with a love of all things art and never say ‘I can’t draw’ again.
“I like art because you don’t need to get everything right, even if it looks a bit wrong it can still look good.” (Year 3 child)
The document below will outline how we aim to provide a broad and balanced art curriculum. As a school with a strong thematic approach to learning, there are many opportunities for art to be done in a meaningful creative manner.
