“I dream my painting and I paint my dream.” Vincent Van Gogh
Our Art and Design Curriculum
At Coopers Lane we make the most of the links between subject areas, exploring art from different times and cultures. For example when learning about the Romans we look at Roman tiles and mosaics and create our own mosaics.
Throughout their time at Coopers Lane all children have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of media within textiles, sculpture, painting, drawing and digital media topics as well as studying a range of artists and learning a variety of skills including drawing, painting, printing, modelling using clay, modrock and recycled materials, printing and photography.
At Coopers Lane all children have their own sketch book that travels with them through the school, showing their progress and developing artistic skills.
We are really lucky at Coopers Lane to have an art room full of specialist art equipment where the children’s art lessons take place.
We take great pride in displaying the children’s artwork and are very proud of the high quality of work on display all around the school.
Extra Curricular Art Opportunities
We have an after school art club where children from years 4-6 (and by invitation only from year 2 and 3) are able to come and explore art techniques and express themselves using visual media. These pieces of art are then displayed within the school and at outside events.
