Art at Ashbourne Primary School promotes creativity, a love of self expression and collaborative participation.
Our work is underpinned by our vision and aims: ‘Nurturing aspiration through happy, creative learning’. Our PRAISE aims are at the heart of every lesson and our focus on the removal of barriers to learning is firmly embedded into all areas of the Art curriculum.
At Ashbourne Primary School children will progressively learn the skills to be able to expressive themselves creatively in personal projects. They will take part in whole-school collaborative projects, where each child participates in producing artwork with a common theme, and learn about great artists and designers. Children are encouraged to have a greater ownership over the appearance of common areas by contributing to the design and creation of displays. An annual art week gives further wonderful opportunities for building knowledge and practising skills.
