Hillcrest's 5 Principles of Art

At Hillcrest, each subject team has created 5 key principles, outlining what makes up quality teaching in each subject:

  1. Celebrate children’s creativity through TLC displays and floor books  

  1. Teachers will be modelling, enthusiastically, a particular art skill or technique linked to a specific artist and adapted to suit TLC text 

  1. Independence promoted to allow creativity and individuality within created pieces. 

  1. Range of art mediums used across the school, with skills being revisited in line with our progression document 

  1. Lessons are organised and sequenced to help pupils acquire knowledge.
