Pre-Prep Art

PRE-PREP ART
In case you have not noticed,
impressions of Degas’ work are
appearing all over the department.
The children are required to observe an original
piece of art very closely, and then do their best to
reproduce it! We study 9 different artists on a 3
year programme, hoping that children will learn to
recognise and appreciate famous works of art; this
intention bears fruit in Year 2 when the children
visit the National Gallery and often are able to
recognise works by artists they have studied.
