Art and Design

“You can’t use up creativity.  The more you use the more you have.”

Maya Angelou

“Art is something that makes you breathe with a different kind of happiness.”

Anni Albers

Art to us is…

Art at Hillside aims to encourage interest in and enjoyment of drawing, painting and sculpting.  We want to give children an understanding of techniques to create effects, the different media that can be used and the work of different artists.

This is achieved through a range of learning opportunities and experiences delivered through an enquiry approach as a curriculum enhancer.  Children learn key knowledge and are encouraged to develop the skills of an artist such as techniques using line, colour, pattern, texture and shape for effect.


A year 6 artist will be able to:

  • Use various techniques and explain why they are effective.
  • Show emotion and movement in their art through the application of techniques.
  • Describe a variety of artists and replicate their style.

Partnership Motto

Growing a culture of being the best version of ourselves Look back with pride and forward with confidence
