At the heart of KS1 Art Curriculum is expression. Well-taught art lessons in KS1 will help children become more confident sharing their unique ideas. They'll become more resilient as they experiment. KS1 children will have fun learning about artists through history. Art is beneficial for social and cultural reasons, too - art helps us to understand ourselves, others, and the world around us.

Children enjoy their art lessons and look forward to being able to "let your mind go wild" Imogen Year 2.
