At Rockbeare we believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience a creative, imaginative and inventive art curriculum. Through art lessons and wider school opportunities, children will gain the skills, concepts and the knowledge they need to express their ideas and respond to their experiences. Pupils will be enabled and encouraged to use and manipulate; colour, texture, form, pattern and a variety of different materials to create their own independent art, craft and design. Throughout a child’s time at Rockbeare they will gain skills in drawing, painting and sculpture. The curriculum is designed to introduce basic skills which are built upon. Skills are revisited annually and the use of an ongoing sketchbook underpins this process.
