At Laurel Avenue Primary School Art is taught through topics using a skills based curriculum.

Art, craft and design stimulates creativity and imagination. We provide a rich environment in which we encourage our children to communicate through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and materials. We use the local environment to stimulate ideas and start some aspects of our art work. Investigating lines, shapes, colours and textures help our children with the basics and enable other work such as 3D and printing to happen.  

All topics are reviewed yearly and changed to meet the interests of the children, the requirements of the curriculum and topical events or current issues in the wider world. 

For further information on the current years’ topics please see individual Class areas.
