At Alwoodley Primary School children explore and develop their skills and creativity using a wide range of media. We value the use of sketch books and encourage the importance of experimentation, exploration and pushing ideas in imaginative ways. We enjoy art on loan from Artemis which we display around school showing a diverse range of styles, media and cultures. We also love to use the artefacts from Artemis to enhance our learning across the curriculum. Our curriculum is enriched by inviting artists in to school to work with children and staff. We also organise trips for the children to explore art in galleries and museums.
We like to celebrate Art with a whole school event, whether it is Big Draw or something like The Great Alwoodley Pottery Throw Down which we held in 2016.
