ART @ COLDFALL

Letters to Parents

 

WHAT WE'RE DOING
“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see” (Degas)

At Coldfall we have commissioned a bespoke scheme of work for art to complement our ‘Global Curriculum’.  Each half term, children will take part in an art project that will take place over the course of a week of afternoon sessions.

Please see the attached document, which outlines what children will be doing in art this year, and look out for photos of the final pieces!
