We believe that the teaching of Art at Eskdale should provide our pupils with opportunities to explore and become more confident in using a range of expressive techniques. The learning of art skills at Eskdale is rooted in our core values, specifically ‘Take Care’.
Our core intent is to enable all pupils to strive to:
Art is taught as part of a thematic, cross-curricular approach although, specific skills can be taught discretely.
To allow our pupils to achieve, our method of teaching incorporates specific meta-cognitive strategies to enable all pupils to retain the learning of both skills and knowledge.
