At our school we believe that children should be encouraged to be creative and that they should be taught the skills

that will allow them to be independent creators. Please look below to view some of our recent work. 

Please look below for a range of materials and resources that shape pupils learning through art in our school. If you can't find what you're looking for, please contact our art  lead, Mrs Rachael Hodgson, through the school office.  


At Linthwaite Ardron we intend our Art and Design curriculum to provide the children with opportunities to develop and extend skills and to express their individual interests, thought and ideas.


Children at Linthwaite Ardron are taught Art as part of their termly topic work.  Details are show in long term plans. Children are taught how to use art resources correctly at an age appropriate level to support encouragement of interest beyond school. Our children learn about great artists (both historical and modern) and they learn to evaluate their own and the work of others.  Work is planned to build on skills sequentially through school. 


Our children will be confident to use their skills and knowledge of art to express themselves in a way that supports their next steps in education or life.
