“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up.” - Pablo Picasso

Underpinning all Art lessons at Putteridge is a focus on empowering and exploring creative processes. Students learn to appreciate and value images and artefacts across times and cultures, and to understand the context in which they were made.  

Students explore a broad range of traditional and non-traditional materials and techniques, providing opportunity for learners to be inquisitive, resilient and self-critical.  This depth of knowledge enables our students to produce creative work, explore their ideas and visually record their experiences. 

Our curriculum implementation engenders high expectations and challenge in order to build students’ perseverance and self-belief, while still fostering an enjoyment and love of art.
