Art at Thorpe
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. – National Curriculum 2014
Art is a fantastic way for all children of all ages to express themselves, be creative and to explore.
“All children are artists” – Pablo Picasso
Here at Thorpe exploring the arts is built into all areas of the curriculum wherever possible.
As a school we enjoy celebrating the art that is created through displays, assemblies and sharing work with pupils and parents.
