We are proud of the high standard achieved in Art and Design at Armathwaite School. We have achieved the Artsmark Gold Award—the highest standard given by the Arts Council. Children are actively encouraged respond creatively and express their ideas visually, exploring a range of practical skills and techniques and using a wide range of materials and media. We learn to use the vocabulary of art and apply this when investigating the works of great artists, craftspeople and designers and when thinking critically and discussing our own art work.
In Year One we have created wonderful abstract paintings,using geometric and free-form shapes.We used both primary and secondary colours,we made the secondary colours by mixing primary colours together.
