Art and Design
Here at East Tilbury Primary School & Nursery, we give pupils opportunities to be creative through a variety of media, including paint, pencils, pastels, clay and chalks.
Pupils explore colour and texture within artists’ work to support their understanding of art. They are also given opportunities to express their feelings and emotions through art, for example by painting and drawing to music. In addition, pupils explore artists’ choices around expression and technique, gaining an understanding of the related narratives, forming their own opinions about the work of specific artists.
Many of the artistic skills are taught in an integrated way through an enquiry based curriculum. Pupils also take part in a number of creatively themed weeks and projects throughout the year, including Creative Week and Take One Picture.
