Art and Design




Art at Southbourne Junior school is about developing creative and visual thinkers. We
encourage expression of thoughts and feelings about the world around the child, through the
medium of Art. Through art, the wider curriculum is accessed, providing essential
connectedness. At Southbourne, art encourages well-being and self-esteem, giving the
individual child autonomy. 

'In art we learnt lots of different techniques, it was amazing how many patterns you can create with a paint brush.' Year 4 artist.

'My dream is to become an artist and school, I think, has helped with that dream with all the steps and tips on shading.' Year 6 artist.

'You can use watercolour pencils, the tip and the belly of the brush can create the shape of a flower. You can shade, blend and fade colours together.' Year 4 artist.
