Heatherside Infant School

Art

At Heatherside, we believe that art should be valued as a subject within its own right, and the benefits of art can be seen across all aspects of children's development, from mental health and wellbeing, to developing resilience, determination and reflection. We offer a structure and sequence of lessons to ensure skills are taught and built on over time.

Our overall aim is to ensure all children have the opportunities to produce creative, imaginative work, through the exploration of their ideas as well as the work of others. This enables children to develop their techniques, their control over the use of materials and creativity, all through experimentation and increasing awareness of different kinds of art and design, in order to prepare them for the next stage of education.
