Hopwood Community Primary School provides children with an exciting and enriched art curriculum. We acknowledge that art and design stimulates creativity and imagination and therefore recognise the importance of quality art lessons. Children at Hopwood are taught a range of artistic skills using a different techniques and media. Children study a variety of famous artists to help inspire ideas and their creativity. When learning about specific artists and their styles we provide the children with the opportunity to visit art galleries and experience real art. We support local art projects and have recently featured our children’s work in Heywood’s Ape Trail and the Lowry’s Snowman Trail. This involved our children working alongside professional artists in school. Although we teach the skills and artistic techniques in stand-alone lessons we strive to make links with current learning. Multi-cultural arts weeks allow are children to experience and practise global artistic styles and make comparisons of these.
