Art lessons at Malden Manor are based on six practical elements-drawing, painting, printing, textiles, 3D and collage.
Most lessons are practical, with the study of artists and their work integral to the majority of themes and activities taught. We learn about a variety of artists from the past such as Degas, Picasso and Lichtenstein, but we also focus on contemporary artists such as Michael Brennand-Wood and Chris Ofili.
Children will experience working with a wide variety of mediums including-watercolour and poster paint, oil and chalk pastels, clay, modroc, collage materials such as tissue paper, newsprint, fabrics and metallic items, and textile materials such as felt, ribbons and threads.
