Thorpe Primary School follows the National Curriculum for Art. At Thorpe, we value Art as it gives children of all abilities opportunities to use their creative imagination to achieve their potential.

The children are taught Art as part of their termly topic work, linking where appropriate to other areas of the curriculum, giving them the opportunity to develop specific art skills. Areas covered include drawing, painting sculpture, printing and textiles.  A high-quality art education intends to engage and inspire children, equipping them with knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art.  This is enhanced further by the study of famous national and international artists and their work.
