Art

“We love the way the children’s artwork is celebrated around the school and their genuine enthusiasm for lessons.”

Drawing… painting… pottery… still life… sculpture… 3D… pastels – art lessons give children the chance to try their hand at all these and more.

We study the work of artists, architects, designers and crafts from different cultures and times, observing differences and similarities and developing children’s critical appreciation. The artworks they study and create are put into context and contribute to a richer understanding of life. Local artists, craftspeople and illustrators are invited in to school to talk about their work and what inspires them. We also visit local museums and galleries to study great works.

Output from our art lessons fills our walls, classrooms and grounds with vibrant life and colour and shows just how creative children can be with the right encouragement. We have exciting extra curricular art activities for the children including pottery, drawing and sewing clubs and in the holidays we offer The Paragon Art School.

At The Paragon, art is enjoyed by all the children and our aim is to stimulate artistic creativity and imagination through visual, tactile and sensory experiences.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
