At Hadleigh Community Primary School we believe in the importance of the children being creative and give many different opportunities for them to learn new skills and techniques.

We enable pupils to explore their creative impulses – to communicate what they see, feel and think, using colour, texture, pattern, sculpture, line and different materials and techniques.

Our Art Curriculum stimulates creativity and imagination across all year groups. Our focus is that we teach the children a wide range of skills and techniques without the emphasis being on the outcome, allowing the children to have freedom in their own creativity. Pupils are encouraged to use the language of Art and learn about great artists, describing differences and similarities, whilst reflecting and improving their own work.

As the children progress through the school, they are taught how to develop their ideas into designs through a variety of media, collage, painting, printing, 3D sculpture, drawing and textiles.
