At WCLA we teach Art lessons that equip children with the skills and knowledge needed to inspire their creative thinking and produce their own works of art. At our school Art is a subject that the children show great passion for.
Children receive an hours Art lesson weekly, every other half term from year one to year six, with a half term of Design and Technology in between. However the teaching of Art begins in EYFS through taught lessons and continuous provision. Lessons are planned for using the National Curriculum objectives and are generally linked to year group topics. Art work is presented effectively in sketch books that follow the children through the school, showing clearly the development and progression of skills and techniques they have been learning.
At WCLA we aim to give children a head start to their secondary art curriculum by providing them with an abundance of opportunities to learn where their artistic talents lie.
