Art is all around us in our day to day lives, both in the community and in the world as a whole. At West Moors Middle School, modern artists are appreciated alongside the more traditional who still influence our lives today. Not only do we teach our children about the potential artists of the future, but we are also helping them to develop an appreciation of the visual world around them through a balance of skills based teaching, creative encouragement and experimentation. All our children get the opportunity to be taught by a Specialist Art Teacher and work in our purpose built art studio.
During their time at school, children are given the opportunity to develop their skills in using a variety of 2D and 3D materials: oil pastels to acrylic paints; papier mâché to clay; and printing to photography.
