The Gleddings Preparatory School What Our Parents Say

"I asked my son what he thinks about school he said I love it and never ever want to leave!" - Mrs Hall

Art and Design

"Art and design is not just a subject to learn but an activity that you can practise with your hands, your eyes, your whole personality."

Quentin Blake
Children's Laureate

Hands on practice

I aim for children to enjoy and share my enthusiasm for Art and Design by participating in a wide range of 'hands on' practical activities.

Children are able to develop in confidence and to improve their techniques. They also learn to respect the materials, tools and resources that they explore.

Understanding art

We explore the work of artists, craftspeople and designers of different cultures. Children develop an appreciation of their own work and that of others. They also learn the importance of art, craft and design throughout history and around the world.

Creativity and imagination are uniquely stimulated through Art and Design and children develop an understanding of colour, shape, space, pattern and texture so that they can communicate what they see, feel and think.

Art and Design provides the opportunity to ask and answer questions, to make thoughtful judgements and to make practical decisions.
