Art

 

At St Augustine's we explore art through our 'Creative Curriculum' weaving art, expression and creativity into all aspects of our day.

 

Our  high-quality art  curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art . Through themed weeks and cultural celebrations children study how art can shape our history, and has contributed to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

Each year group is allocated famous artists throughout the year to study in order develop techniques, appreciate a range of Artistic styles and generally to gain a love of Art in all its forms! See the links below to find our more about your current Artist.

Mental Health and Awareness Week 2021 'Express Yourself'

 During  Children's Mental Health Week we explored the different ways we can express ourselves, and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, our thoughts and our ideas. Expressing yourself is about using art, music, writing and poetry, dance,  drama, photography and film -  anything  that make you feel good!

Expressing yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself. There is no better way to express yourself than loosing yourself in your art work. 

Have a look below at the children 'expressing' their personality and emotions through their choice of colour, shape, image, media...
