At Handcross we recognise the value of Art and Design in the lives of the children we teach. As a result, we ensure that art lessons are thoughtfully planned in accordance with the National Curriculum programmes of study and have clear opportunities for children to develop their skills in printing, drawing, sculpture building and textiles. Lessons are taught in units and we try our best to make beneficial links to topics being taught. Children are exposed to a range of artists and are encouraged to develop their own responses to their work, as well as the work of others.
All children at Handcross are artists and we love seeing the wonderful pieces they create!
