Keston Church of England Primary School

Art and Design

"I have really enjoyed Art lessons, I have learnt to use shading and shadow in my sketches."

- Year 5 Pupil

At Keston CE Primary School we are ARTISTS! We value art as an important part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. Art provides the children with the opportunities to develop and extend skills and an opportunity to express their individual interests, thoughts and ideas. 

Arts and craft embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art. Children should also know how art reflects and shapes our history and contributes to the culture and creativity.
