Art outcomes at Beecroft
Art lies at the heart of everything we do here at Beecroft Garden, it is evident everywhere in our school and throughout our curriculum. As well as enriching learning throughout all of our topics and providing all children a creative output, each year group gets a focussed art half term with our specialist Art teacher Dilys, where they have the time and space to create incredible outcomes. We regularly exhibit nationally and host our own annual art show and art sale.
If you want to know more about our unique approach to art and see some of the outstanding outcomes children have produced take a look at the video below.
You can access regular home learning activities set by our art teacher extraordinaire Dilys. These are aimed at children who are missing learning, but anyone can join in.
Below is one of the virtual exhibitions created in the first lockdown, where each week children were introduced to a new artists and encouraged to take part in a variety of art activities, with minimum resources.
