Art is taught in a cross-curricular approach following the National Curriculum. All pupils get the opportunity to explore different types of art and artists work, gathering research to help use as a foundation for their own creations. Pupils can explore different art forms such as portraits, painting, pottery, colleges, 3D sculptures and digital art. This allows pupils to discover this own preferences and feelings towards art, become more aware of different cultures and use their own imagination.
During the academic year, all pupils will get the chance to visit an art gallery and take part in a workshop to develop knowledge and skills.
Dot-Art in Schools
Each year, pupils take part in the Dot-art in schools competition, competing against other Liverpool schools and culminating in an exhibition. Pupils in Year 5 will work in class lessons to create a piece of art work on a chosen theme, giving them the opportunity to explore and use different materials.
This year, Callum from Nu, was chosen as the winning artist from Hope School. Callum and the other participants will attend a prize giving ceremony on Thursday 21st June to receive their prizes and to view Callum's work on display.
