Art and Design

At Whitegrove, we respond to different aspects of the curriculum through artistic expression, and children are encouraged to take pride in the presentation of excellent work.

We aim to equip every child with the skills to produce, evaluate and adapt their own work using a wide range of different media.

Children also learn about great artists, both contemporary and in history, and some of their key works. They discuss these critically and draw inspiration from the work of others. This is linked into other areas of the curriculum as children learn how art and design have influenced and been influenced by people and places around the world and throughout human history.
