At Dishforth Airfield Primary School, we strive to teach children a variety of skills, techniques and art history, so that, art excites creativity, imagination and inventiveness. We trust that by teaching art, our pupils are able to learn the concepts, skills and knowledge necessary for them to express responses to ideas and experiences for the duration of their time that they are with us, due to our highly mobile community. It fuels their imagination.
We use sketchbooks to record experiences and imagination, to help the children develop their ideas and to show progression in their artistic ability. We encourage children to work in small groups and individually to produce work in two and three dimensions and a range of scales.
