At St John’s the children are taught a wide range of methods, skills and techniques to enhance their Art and Design learning. They are provided with opportunities to explore, design and investigate different topics and artists using a variety of media. Teachers encourage the children to discuss and evaluate their own and other people’s work with confidence. At St John’s Art and Design is taught through the Creative Curriculum.  Works of art are often used as the starting stimulus for a term’s topic. Art focus days take place annually, often forming links with music, dance and drama. Art is highly valued at St John's and in 2013 we were delighted to be awarded the Artsmark Gold.
