Art and Design
Our Art and design curriculum at St. John’s aims to ensure that all pupils produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences. We use of full range of resources to broaden the children’s experiences including sketching pencil, clay, charcoal, pastels, paints, water colours and chalk. The key areas of focus are to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques. Once a piece has been finished we encourage the children to evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design. It is also important that the children know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
Through our Enfield Town School Partnership we have participated in many art activities working alongside local artists and participating in an Art Exhibition in Enfield town.

This wonderful piece of artwork was created by Daniel (our artist in residence) for the Enfield Schools Town Partnership. It combines work from pupils at our school and Prince of Wales over both years of the Making a Mark project with pupils in Yr.3/4 and Reception Class.
