At Pickering Infant School, we believe that Art is inclusive and encourages creativity and curiosity for all children. We believe that Art should be a stimulating and enjoyable experience for all children, allowing them to express themselves through a piece of artwork, which has been produced individually or collaboratively. Over their school career at Pickering Infants, we endeavour to teach them progressive skills and for them to have the confidence to experiment with their ideas, by providing them with inspiring topics, challenges and opportunities to explore the works of famous artists. Through the use of sketchbooks, children will have the opportunity to evaluate, analyse and re-visit their work and develop resilience by making and learning from mistakes. All children should leave our school with: a set of basic skills in drawing and painting, sculpture, textiles and printmaking; an appreciation of work by a range of artists and an inquisitive nature meaning that they are capable of producing a piece of creative artwork which they and others can be proud of.
