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 six developmental areas: drawing, painting, printing, collage, 3D and textiles. Teachers plan lessons which provide a wide breadth of opportunities to experience art across the curriculum as well as exploring the history of art, movements and individual artists.
