At Ladysmith Junior School we recognise the importance of arts education forming an integral part of the curriculum. We believe art education stimulates creativity and imagination whilst giving the child unique opportunities to develop intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially, raising pupil self-esteem and their understanding and appreciation of the arts within and beyond the school environment. All pupils are given the opportunity to respond to the world and their personal environment through a range of media, which encapsulates an engaging, broad, rich, and inclusive curriculum. The children will learn to improve their mastery of art and design techniques by learning specific drawing, painting and sculpture techniques. They will experience using a wider range of materials. Children will use technology to produce images, patterns and decorative pieces of work. They will record their observations and ideas and use them to review and evaluate improvements.  They will also learn about great artists, architects and designers in history.
