Art & Design

Art and Design lessons at St Vincent’s aim to engage, inspire and challenge our pupils as well as equip them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.

The children are fortunate to have a specialist art teacher for lessons from Y1 – Y6. They are taught how to use a variety of skills, such as drawing, painting and sculpting to produce artwork that is linked to the projects which focus on each of the Vincentian Values. As children progress through the school they use sketch books to record their observations, plan, create and evaluate their work, as well as make comparisons. They also learn about various artists. Artwork is celebrated and displayed throughout the school, most notably when the hall is turned into a gallery each year and part of the proceeds go to charity.
