In Bishopstone we aim to:

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences

  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques

  • evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design

  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and

    cultural development of their art forms. 

  • Children also take part in activities to develop the environment around them by using their artistic skills.  They have decorated the porch and inside corridor by working with a local artist - Helen Cooper, creating work based on the surrounding village in different mediums.  KS2 are currently working with another local artist - Sue Walton, to create work for the Wyvern Theatre in Swindon for Christmas.
  • Our next project is to work with local historians in Hinton Parva to create a sculpture celebrating WW1

From January 2016 the children will be working in year groups with a specialist art teacher who will be creating mini projects with them, over several afternoons to continue to inspire and hone their art skills:

FS - Gingerbread clay sculptures

Yr1 - Abstract wood scuplture

Yr2 - Abstract plaster of paris balloon sculpture

Yr3 - Repujado wall hanging

Yr4 - Giacometti style figure statues
