Welcome Back to the Autumn Term

GEMS Twickenham Primary Academy

Inspiring Education and Achievement for Life


Art has a very important place in our curriculum and is weaved into our half termly topics. We see art as a vehicle for creativity and individual expression and it provides opportunities for collaborative work. It is an important form of cultural expression and, therefore, has significance and meaning for all our children. Our teaching provides an understanding of all the diverse art forms so that the children experience drawing, painting, collage, textiles, 3D designs, printmaking and digital media. They will be introduced to the Great Masters and a wide variety of other artists and their styles. Trips to our wonderful London galleries and the fabulous local Orleans House Gallery are regularly organised. We have Art Days with a whole school focus on one artist or painting and we include art in our themed weeks. We will work towards Artsmark targets and participate in competitions such as the superb Young Art held by Cancer Research UK.
