Our Art vision is to creatively explore ideas through experimentation
At Diamond Wood Community Academy children explore and develop their skills and creativity using a wide range of media. We value the use of sketch books and encourage the importance of experimentation, exploration and pushing ideas in imaginative ways.
We enjoy displaying art around school showing a diverse range of styles, media and cultures. We also love to use the creative artefacts to enhance our learning across the curriculum.
Our curriculum is enriched by inviting artists in to school to work with children and staff. We like to celebrate Art with a whole school event, ‘Creative Week’ this event happens annually and the children are able to enjoy a whole week full of creative activities which they can explore and flourish, these activities include art, dance, music and drama.
We also have an Arts Council in school, they help manage and support events in school, perform assemblies in front on the whole school and organise and judge creative competitions held for pupils within our school.
