School Values in Art
Individual and unique:
Students arrive at Edwinstree with very mixed experiences of art. The very nature of the subject encourages the uniqueness of every individual in society. We celebrate and encourage a way to develop the unique qualities of every child, using a variety of multimedia, whether it be drawing, painting, 3D or digital expression of that individual.
The art room is often described a 'haven', students discover those moments when the 'magic ' happens and their piece of work suddenly appears from the page.
Students have the opportunity to develop their artistic abilities through practical projects and an oversubscribed art club. They have the opportunity to shine in large scale art projects in school, as well as classroom critical analysis during lessons. We have the 'Artist of the Month' displayed in the art room.
Students explore the work or different artists, from cave men to the present day. They challenge their own understanding of what styles of art they appreciate. They have the door opened to world art, different cultures and religions.
