Art and Design
Art and Design is a key creative part of our whole curriculum at St Amand’s.
We aim to support children’s learning of key skills within Art and Design and give them the opportunity to explore, use and apply these skills through a variety of mediums. We hope children are inspired to express themselves creatively using key skills learnt and inspiration from artists, past and present.

At the end of the Summer Term 2019 we had a whole school Art Week supporting Children’s Art Week for the charity Engage.
We took the theme of ‘Spirals’ as inspiration for our art work across the school, focusing on different skills and Art and Design areas such as painting, sculpture and textiles. We held a gallery of all our art work in the hall at the end of the week open to parents and children. It was a great success!
See the gallery pictures below from our ‘Spirals’ art week.
During the Autumn Term in Owls Class, we have learning about the artists Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh and the painting techniques they used to create landscapes and cityscapes. The children used the techniques they had learnt to create their own landscape paintings.
