In Art lessons, children at Temple Hill School will be involved in looking at the work of artists and crafts people and studying the methods they have used. They will look at work from different cultures and from different times and will be asked to discuss their likes and dislikes in order to develop their appreciation and understanding of art. They will also be involved in producing artwork themselves. They will be taught how to use a variety of materials and they will be encouraged to develop basic skills in drawing and colour mixing so that they can produce good observational sketches. As children progress through the school they will be given wider choices of materials and techniques, including clay work, and will need to make more complex decisions in developing their sketches into pieces of work.
