What does Art look like at St. Mary's?
Our Art curriculum develops creativity and inspires children. Through challenges, we seek to equip our children with the knowledge and skills to explore and engage within a range of materials in order to experiment, design and create their own work.
Our curriculum aims to enable the children to reach and exceed their potential at St Mary's Catholic Primary School.
We celebrate children's achievements and showcase the skills and progress they have made when displaying and sharing the work they create.

Woods Class Enrichment & Enhancement Week
During our enrichment and enhancement week, we have focused on art. We have particularly focused on Typography. This was a relatively new concept to many of us so we firstly began by researching what it was and looking carefully at some examples. We then created some of our own examples and extended this to creating our own name using typography and graffiti style online. After creating our own style of typography, we added this into our final piece. Take a look at some of our work and see how much fun we had!
During the next few art sessions, we are going to cover the following objectives…
