Ilfracombe Church of England (VC) Junior School


We are very proud of the creative freedom we give to our students through our art courses.


Each of our year groups have three topics to explore, which are usually based on an artist/artistic movement or the topics currently being covered in class. Students build up their personal knowledge, understanding & confidence within these projects.



One project is focused on the students drawing & painting skills, whilst the other two can include expression through the printmaking, textile, collage & 3D construction techniques.

Students are encouraged to explore & experiment with the visual elements (see below) using different media such as paint, pastels, pencil & clay.


  Visual Elements:

  • Shape

  • Pattern           

  • Colour

  • Form

  • Space

  • Texture

  • Tone

  • Line

  • Mark
