Artist Focus

Each year, Parkfielders study the work of a number of artists. By the time they leave the school children will have seen and recreated a wide range of art work. They will have been inspired by artists from different eras and used a wide range of medians in their work. Each class also has an annual 'Art and Design' theme day that focusses on a particular art skill and artist. Details can be found below.
