At Canklow Woods we follow the national curriculum to teach art. We continually strive for new and innovative ways to include art into our work at schools. Our art is usually linked to our topic work using a wide range of tools and techiniques, all of which the staff and children either are or become very talented at. This is very evident from our displays all around school. We have a very talented art teacher Mrs Taylor who supports staff and children once a week, this has enabled staff to develop their own skills and build on them for further topics and teaching.
Children become familiar with using pencil, pen and ink, chalk and oil pastels, paint, and watercolour. Children are taught to use different tools for texture and tone in their work. We become experts with printing, weaving and sewing.
Our art work is always displayed beautifully alongside other work and we take pride in this creating an atmosphere of success and acheivement.
