Every Child Is an Artist – Pablo Picasso
Our aim at All Saints’ is to develop and encourage the children’s natural creativity so that they can become confident and enthusiastic artists. Through our teaching of art, which happens not only in the school but in our local environment and during our trips to art galleries, we hope to develop each pupil’s knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of art and design. We aim to give the children a wide exposure to a great variety of artists, designers and craftsmen as well as the opportunity to use different art techniques, from a diverse range of cultures both past and present.
Each child has a hard-backed sketch book which they add to during their time at All Saints’ and which documents the progression of their drawing skills. The children take part in a variety of Art Competitions and have benefited enormously from involvement in the ‘Take one Picture’ initiative at the National Gallery, where their work was exhibited.
Below is just a small insight into some of the creative accomplishments made by children throughout the school at All Saints’.
