Art gives children at Cudham the opportunity to be creative and develop their skills using a range of media and materials. Children learn skills of drawing, painting, printing, collage, textiles, 3D work and digital art, as well as exploring and evaluating ideas.
These skills are applied to their cross-curricular topics, allowing children to use their art skills to reflect on and explore topics in greater depth; for example, by sketching historical artefacts in detail, or researching geographical locations to support their work on landscape painting.
Many areas of art also link with mathematical ideas of shape and space, for example when printing repeating patterns and designs, or when thinking about three-dimensional shapes
