All pupils participate in a wide range of activities, using a variety of quality materials. The children progress from early “mark making” to being able to represent observed, remembered and imagined objects and scenes in a range of media. Children usually have experience of working in pencil, charcoal, pastel, paint, clay and fabrics. Using artefacts and reproductions of art from a variety of cultures, children acquire the vocabulary of “visual literacy” to describe their responses and incorporate these into their own work. Art and display relate closely to topics and themes throughout the whole curriculum.
