Art and Design

Art is a powerful and very individual communication tool for our pupils. Art combines the development of ideas and concepts, through to exploration and education of feeling, thus helping to educate the ‘whole’ child. Due to the nature of the ‘arts’ and its diversity there is no right or wrong way to create a piece of Art, therefore pupils at Nine Acres can gain confidence and a feeling of achievement from whatever the end result may be.
 
We use Art sketchbooks to capture throughts and ideas about different Art periods and styles and to capture comments about significant Artists.
 
We combine the study of Art and the techniques we have learned with our Geography, History and Science learning journeys, to produce portraits of other significant individuals that have impacted the world.
