Art & Design Technology
At Holly Lodge art will be linked to topic based learning within each year group. Art work will be displayed within the classrooms, hall and around the school.
Children will explore a range of different techniques such as drawing, painting and sculpture and will use a variety of materials, from pencil and paint to charcoal and clay, to create their own pieces. Famous artists will be used as a stimulus to art in KS1 & KS2, and in addition, during KS2, children will study the works of some great artists, architects and designers from history.
