Art and Design at Eye Primary School
How is art taught at Eye?
Art is taught in half-termly blocks and each half-term focuses on one of the disciplines so that across the year every year group has experience of drawing, painting, sculpture, textiles, collage and printing. Skills taught in the previous year can then be built on during the next. Children look at works of different artists to help them to think about how art is formed and are then able to use their imaginations to create their own piece of work.
Visiting Artist - Roland Burt
We had a visit from local artist Roland Burt and created a piece of art that every child in the school contributed to. Roland showed the children how to draw figures and animals using numbers, letters and household objects and told them stories of his childhood.
