Art & Design

At Mayespark Primary School, we believe that high-quality art lessons will inspire children to think innovatively and develop creative procedural understanding.

Our art and design curriculum engages, inspires and challenges pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art.
