Art is highly valued at Llangrove and whilst skills and techniques are taught specifically, art is integrated across the curriculum and is reflected in many subjects. Children have the opportunity to experience the key elements including colour, shape, texture, pattern and line, in both 2D and 3D form with reference to past and present day artists as well as engaging with practitioners through HMFA schools’ shared workshops. Children are encouraged to develop individuality and critical awareness through their artwork which is displayed around the school as part of creating a stimulating learning environment. Our artwork is also often shared with the village community as part of the local church and village hall festivals.
Throughout the year, each year group teaches specific skills through their topics. A brief summary of art lesson coverage throughout Lord Scudamore Academy can be found below.
