Make a mess!

Paint or draw some splashes onto a piece of paper and see what you can create from them. This fun phenomenon is called Hirameki (it means ‘Inspiration’ or 'Flash of Inspiration' in Japanese) creates fantastical pictures from abstract shapes. Even the most inexperienced doodlers can produce hundreds of sensational scribbles, as it challenges you to look beyond the blot and draw what you see.

Here's some inspiration for you.

Why art is important

We want Sheringham children to be artists so that they can explore their creativity, experiment with a range of mediums and produce outcomes they can be genuinely proud of. 

It is widely accepted that art can positively impact mental health, by offering freedom of expression, stress relief and the opportunity to practice mindfulness and so we strive to provide all children with enjoyable, creative experiences throughout their education.

Art also allows for the appreciation of different styles, celebrating many artists, cultures and the diversity within their own community and beyond.

How our art curriculum is designed

Our curriculum is informed by the National Curriculum and enhanced by subject expertise held within Sheringham and the Learning in Harmony Trust, as well as local opportunities and current events. 

Art is taught in blocks of one or two weeks, several times a year. Where possible, topics are linked to other areas of the curriculum to provide deeper learning opportunities. 

How children learn in art

Sheringham artists will: 

  • Participate in workshops lead by specialists 
  • Develop an appreciation of art through visits to national and local institutions.  
  • Use a wide range of materials including clay for sculpture, painting and drawing, 
  • Explore different artistic styles 
  • Learn how to refine their ideas and skills to create a final piece
  • Share their work in a variety of ways, including galleries
  • Both receive and provide a critique of the artwork created.
  • Explore the vast array of artistic opportunities in both work and leisure.
