Art at Eupheus is lively, exciting, and invigorating. Our children experience a wide range of artwork and materials through a curriculum that is fresh and stimulating.

Practical lessons take place in our purpose built classrooms with high ceilings and natural light. Pupils gain experience in drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and modelling through the study of both historic and contemporary art practice. The outside classroom is regularly utilised to provide stimulation and another layer to artistic learning.

Each child keeps a sketchbook which is used to record observations, and to research and plan project work.

Through experimenting with ideas, trying out new techniques, recording feelings, thoughts and information about artists, the children develop work that is ambitious, well thought out and at times on a large scale.

Some projects encompass group work, when our children will form small teams. This aims to help stimulate camaraderie, the sharing of knowledge and ideas, and ultimately a feeling of common accomplishment.

The use of ICT is mainly evident through research, and some projects use digital media in both the creation and recording process.
