Our Vision for Art


At Fleet Infant School art forms an important part of the curriculum. We believe art education stimulates creativity and imagination whilst giving the child unique opportunities to develop intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially. Art is not just taught in a designated Art lesson, but wherever appropriate, it is linked to topics and the wider curriculum and as it gives children the opportunities to bring topics to life.


In Key Stage 1 the children will learn to use a range of different materials creatively to design and make products. They will draw, paint, print and sculpture materials such as clay to develop techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. Children will use technology to produce images. They will also learn about the work of artists.

In the Autumn term, the children in Year 2 develop their sketching techniques practiced in Year 1. They look at the work of famous illustrators such as Quentin Blake. Finally, they apply their skills to dragon sketches.

In the Autumn term, Year 1 learn how to use chalk and oil pastels. They look at the works of Cezanne and Georgia O Keefe as inspiration for their own drawings.
