Art and Design

The Art and Design Subject Leader is Mrs Amanda Awford

At Selborne Church of England Primary School, we believe that all children are entitled to a broad balanced art and design Curriculum.  It is our intent that different skills are taught using a wide range of resources and to study a range of different artists and their techniques used.  We believe that every individual should have the opportunity to develop and realise their true potential through art and design.  To ensure that this happens, we aim to consistently provide learning opportunities for all children that offer challenge, intellectual stimulation and an enriched curriculum.


Please see the document below to gain a full understanding of our Art and Design curriculum here at Selborne including the intent, implementation and impact which can be found in the subject policy.

Year 3 and 4 have been studying the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo and have produced self portraits using fruit and vegetables to create their features.
Year R have painted self portraits by using a mirror to study the features of their faces.  What a lovely lot they are.

Reception Class have been learning about the famous Dutch Artist - Vincent Van Gogh and recreated the famous 'Sunflowers'



Rabbits class have been using oil pastels and chalks to create different effects. We then looked at images of the Northern Lights and tried to choose colours and effects to show this. Lastly we created Christmas Cards with everything we had learnt to create images of The Northern Lights ourselves.
