art

Art is a significant feature in life at Foremarke and this is reflected in the displays around the school and in the Gallery in the Prep School foyer.

All pupils from Year 1 onwards have an hour of art each week. As well as being taught painting techniques, pupils are taught to use the correct brushes for the piece they are doing. Pupils are introduced to art history with Year 1 pupils being able to recognise and talk about 3 – 4 international artists. By the time pupils are in Year 6, they will have knowledge of 30 – 40 major artists. Classes also cover model making, design and technology

There are, in addition, a number of extracurricular arts classes which run each week.
