Art is an integral part of our curriculum at The Beacon. We believe that Art in its many forms stimulates creativity and imagination, providing children with a variety of opportunities to develop intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially. Through dance, drama, music, film and creative art, all children are provided with a wealth of unique first hand experiences.  

Our long term planning covers seven developmental areas: collage, printing, artist study, drawing, photography, painting and 3D art. Teachers plan lessons which provide a wide breadth of opportunities to explore Art across the curriculum, providing a dynamic focus for childrens’ wider learning and development.
