"Every Child is an Artist" — Pablo Picasso
"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." - Albert Einstein

At Wybunbury Delves we aim to 'light the spark for a love of learning and of life' and believe Art and Design is a subject which offers the very best opportunities to achieve this. We adopt SPARK approach to learning to foster and maintain children's creativity.

Art is taught through a combination of direct teaching, providing children with real experience, use of teacher-prepared materials, other artists' work, educational visits, artists-in-residence and other resources such as TV and Information Technology. We ensure that the act of investigating and making something includes exploring and developing ideas, and evaluating and developing work. Children are given opportunity for exploration and experimentation and instruction in handling tools and materials. Each term, the children's learning is based around an artist and the skills used, ensuring that three differing artists are studied throughout the year, covering different areas of the curriculum/styles of artists. Teachers draw attention to good examples of individual performance as models for the other children. They encourage children to evaluate their own ideas and methods, and the work of others, and say what they think and feel about them.

Each class takes part in our Big Art week at the beginning of each term, with a focus on skills related to 3D art to engage children with their learning theme. This week is closely linked to Design and Technology skills and can incorporate the skills taught and the artist linked to each term's learning.
