At Bitterne CE Primary we aim to develop a love of beauty in the world around us and to inspire creative expression through different medias. Whilst they learn all about different art styles and significant artists related to those art movements, we encourage the children to explore their own individuality through personalised expression as we believe anyone can be an artist. We aim to foster a love of creative expression, help them find their own specialised artistic medium, trust in their own strengths and experiences and forgive themselves for any mistakes they might make as they help us to learn and grow. We then hope they continue to use their art skills, knowledge and creativity in the wider world and as an alternative method to express themselves.
Over the years at their time at Bitterne CE Primary, the children get the chance to work with clay, paint, pencils, crayons, cloth and ink to create their own artwork. As their art skills grow, they begin to develop and analyse key features of prominent artists work as well as their own. They also get the opportunity to explore their own thoughts and feelings through creative outlets.
