Art at Hillbrook

PDF icon Art Curriculum

Art at Hillbrook aims to ensure that all pupils produce high quality artwork, explore art materials and record their experiences and experimentation. The art curriculum develops children’s skills in drawing, painting, collage and other techniques in art and design.


The elements of art – colour, form, value, texture, space and shape - are the foundation of lessons and are built upon throughout the key stages. Children at Hillbrook develop the language and vocabulary required to evaluate their own work and the work of others enabling them to become artists themselves. 



Children are taught about well-known artists and artworks, providing them with the opportunity to discuss ideas and form their own opinions. Units of work are often topic based and connected to London and Tooting, providing children with relevant and meaningful learning experiences. We aim to nurture the artists within children, encouraging them to take risks, express themselves and enjoy being creative.
