Art at St John's
The Art curriculum at St John's Primary aims to allow learners to enjoy communicating what they see, think and feel through creating art and also engaging with the work of various artists. Art is a multi-sensory and multi-skilled area of learning and children have the opportunity to develop their ideas, evaluate the work of others and appreciate their own unique artworks.

Our Planned Impact
We aim to ensure that children enjoy the creativity and expressivity of art because they are
always keen to learn new skills and build their resilience. The children’s art is very often
cross-curricular and helps them to express feelings and emotions in art, as well as show
their knowledge and understanding of other areas of the curriculum. Art at St. Luke’s allows
children to showcase talents that might not come to the fore in other subjects and therefore
builds self-esteem. We hope that moving forward, children will be able to reach out into the
community by exhibiting their artwork locally. We aim to diminish the difference through
teaching a broad and culturally relevant art curriculum tailored to St. Luke’s learners that will
not only acknowledge the cultural backgrounds of the children, but also further invest in their
cultural capital portfolios with the addition of wider knowledge and experiences of art.
