 'The only time I feel alive is when I'm painting.'                 Vincent Van Gogh

 

At Headfield Junior School our art curriculum is designed to provide enriched opportunities for children to express and explore their individual creativity. It provides each child with a valuable opportunity to develop a sense of belonging. At Headfield we believe that every child has the right to a broad and balanced curriculum enriched with opportunities to explore a project-based, themed approach. Our curriculum allows each child to invent, experiment and problem solve through many aspects of art and design. Children are introduced to a range of work and artistic styles by famous artists with the opportunity to experiment with these methods and techniques ultimately using them to develop their own artistic style.
