Art and Design

        We agree with the great Picasso!


At Robins Lane we believe that each child IS an artist and has the potential to develop their skills.


Art and design stimulates pupil creativity and imagination.

Our pupils are encouraged to use skills in colour, pattern, texture, line, tone, shape, form, space and different materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think. Through art, craft and design activities they learn to make judgements and aesthetic and practical decisions, becoming actively involved in making images, objects and learning to shape their own environment.
They explore, through discussion and the making of art, the ideas and meanings in the work of artists, craftspeople and designers. They learn the part that art, craft and design plays in their own and others’ lives in contemporary life and in different times and cultures.
