Art & Design

At TRPA we inspire learning and understanding through our inclusive and creative curriculum, encouraging curiosity and giving our children a life-long love of learning and the knowledge and skills to make the world a better place in the 21st century.  

We recognise that a creative and high-quality Art curriculum contributes to the development of the whole child (emotionally, physically, socially and cognitively). It provides all children with the opportunity to express themselves imaginatively, celebrating our diversity and developing their understanding of, and response to, the world around them. At TRPA children are given opportunities to explore their ideas by experimenting, inventing and creating their own varied works of art using a range of materials. Children are given opportunities to develop their Art skills in key areas such as; drawing, textiles, sculpture, painting, print making and collage.  These areas are developed continuously throughout the school from Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 4. We develop critical thinking, making links with art to other areas of the curriculum and the contribution it makes on culture and the world around us.
