OVERVIEW

Students are introduced to the skills of drawing through termly drawing tests, viewing their development and improvement each term. Drawing is the basis of all art. This develops the students' confidence and skill. Each term students experience painting, printmaking and sculpture; each starting point is age appropriate and engaging. Students learn how to develop ideas influenced by artists researched, experimenting with different media to create exciting final pieces.
