Art is becoming a massive part of Gaskell school and it is evident to see throughout all of our beautiful school.
We are currently working towards an Artsmark Award throughout school and have started our fantastic journey towards this prestigious award this year.
We have an Arts Award assessed member of staff now (Miss Varey) who can deliver art programmes which amount to art qualifications for the children.
We have Art Club during the summer term and hope that we can extend this in the future so that children can create portfolios to go alongside their qualifications.
We help children to develop a range of artistic skills during Art lessons such as sketching, painting, sculpting and shading. We enable children to express themselves through different styles of art such as abstract, impressionism and surrealism.
Children learn about a variety of artists during their lessons such as: Dali, Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso and Kandinsky. They enjoy looking at different styles of art and interpreting it in their own individual way.
