This provides the children with an opportunity to develop an awareness of the world around them through visual and tactile experiences as well as being another way to express imaginative ideas. Art & Design also encourages the use of descriptive language (oral and written) through observation and experimentation. We aim to offer the children chances to experience many different techniques. They will study the work of a variety of artists and will explore tone, colour and texture and develop observational skills.

Our school membership and active link with The Towner art gallery provides enriching opportunities.

The school is proud to have achieved the Arts Mark Silver Award in recognition of the quality of art provision and the successful teaching and learning provided through the school.

The Art curriculum at Motcombe has taken many of the content and principles of ‘Mastery’ in mathematics.  We have developed a curriculum which ensures children spend longer being taught the common features and skills in order to have a more coherent Art curriculum and therefore be able to develop mastery in the subject.
