Expressive Arts and Design
At St George’s, we value Art as a subject, to inspire and develop our children’s creative thinking and to develop their cultural, spiritual and moral understanding. We encourage all our children to express their thoughts and emotions in a safe and appropriate way. It is embedded in everything we do and Art is a fantastic medium, which can support and empower our children to do this. We teach our children to be reflective of their work and respectful of others. We take inspiration from our class artists, learning more about them and their style, which we then apply to our own work. We plan and teach sequenced art lessons based on skills, using a range of media and give the children opportunities to apply the skills learned in other areas of the curriculum, making the lessons relevant and meaningful.
Every Child is an artist and shines its light. Pablo Picasso.

Art is a place for children to learn to trust their ideas themselves and to explore what is possible. Maryann F Kohl.
