Creative Stars is an art class for children aged 4 – 11 years. Parents are allowed to stay and get creative alongside their children.
CS aims to introduce children to the world of art by teaching about artists, art movements and art from different world cultures. All 6 strands of art are taught, these being drawing, painting,collage, printing, 3D work and textiles along with the visual elements of art. Classes also support the National Curriculum standards for art.
Games and puzzles are also used to vary the children’s approach to learning. There is also a sticker system in place where the children get the chance to win prizes.
Children are encouraged to work as artists and are provided with a sketchbook. As the age range is wide, activities are differentiated by task, outcome and expectations plus additional homework projects for the older children to further their understanding and build upon existing skills, knowledge and understanding.
We work with half termly themes and children have the opportunity to exhibit their work in the annual celebratory art exhibition and awards ceremony.
