Art & Design
At Uplands Junior school the "Arts" are a very important part of the curriculum. We believe that art and design stimulates creativity and imagination. Through art activites our pupils learn to make informed judgements and aesthetic and practical decisions.
Children have the opportunity to use a wide range of materials, tools and techniques for both 2D and 3D work. They are given opportunites to explore their ideas using sketchbooks and are able to work independently and collaboratively on different scales.
The key skills explored are colour, form, texture, patter, line and space. Our annual arts week allows children to further their knowledge, skills and understanding through a range of planned activites based around a theme.
Our curriculum allows children to study a wide variety of art and artists from around the world both from the past and the present. We take pride in celebrating all children's work in and around our school and in our Gallery.
