Intent

Our Art Room

We are very lucky to have a fantastic art room where we can design, create and make our Art and Designs come to life.

Implementation

Neil Wood is one of our regular resident artists who has over the years done some amazing projects with the children, teaching them many skills including using clay and plaster of Paris to create plaques and modroc to make sculptures.

Phil Sutton from the Kings School along with a few of his pupils worked with our KS2 children to design and spray paint a montage on the fence by Nursery.
