At Redhill we promote the arts in all its aspects (music, visual, and dance, design and technology and performing arts) We ensure we are making the arts come alive and offer this to all children across school. Our school vision is that we are committed to the talents of every child and celebrate achievement across the whole curriculum. (below to be added following this)
Children enjoy Art and talk about their experience of the arts in a positive way:
“Art sessions help us with our mental health”
“Art helps us to develop and explore our imagination”
“Art helps me to relax and stay calm”
“I enjoy learning about the different artists that can inspire me to create my own artwork”
Over the past two years we have been working on our Artsmark journey, showing the sense of value we place on the Arts. The children and staff have worked hard to develop the arts within school and we are pleased to have been awarded an Artsmark Silver Award.
We looked carefully at 'Winter in Broughton' and the different shapes he used. We looked at using these shapes to create similar images. We know that Lowry is famous for his 'Match Stick Men' and today we explored creating our own, thinking carefully about the different shapes that he used to create the images.
The children worked in mixed year groups to create pictures of well known traditional tales using a range of media.
