As a school, we believe that art is an essential part of the curriculum. It enables children to develop their individual creativity and express their ideas. Within art lessons children learn the skills of drawing, painting, printing, collage, textiles, 3D work and digital art and are given the opportunity to explore and evaluate different creative ideas.
Learning is enhanced through many topic links such as history, geography and science. Children learn how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
At Moorpark our broad and balanced curriculum will engage children, enabling them reach to their full potential. Children are given opportunities to develop skills and express their interests, thoughts and ideas. We want to inspire and challenge pupils ensuring they have the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own piece of art. We want every child to develop their confidence and to have a sense of achievement.
