Welcome to Art at The Vale
Here at The Vale we provide children with opportunities to explore the world around them through the use of a range of different artistic techniques including collage, drawing, painting, sculpture and textiles. This learning is often linked to other areas of the curriculum and the children learn about a range of artists, artisans and designers from different periods of time and artistic styles.
In each unit of learning the children develop skills to communicate their ideas after exploring the artwork of others. They have the opportunity to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. Through these opportunities the children are equipped with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
