Art

ArtArt Here at Pickhill we help children develop visual perception and creative skills through a wide variety of experiences.  Children have the opportunity to experiment with several types of different media including pencil, paint, pastel, clay, textiles and photography.

Children are encouraged to use a variety of different stimuli as a starting point for a piece of artwork. This could be anything from a landscape, a poem or a piece of artwork by an established artist.  From this inspiration children might create a painting or a collage, make a series of prints or construct something in three dimensions. Throughout the process children are asked to constantly evaluate their own work and that of others in order to appreciate how something was made and to sometimes make improvements.

Pickhill welcomes visits from artists willing to share their skills and offers children an opportunity to focus on creativity during our ‘Art Days’ which are held regularly during the school year.
