Upper Primary Art

The benefits of studying Primary Art

Our Primary Art and Design homeschooling course covers the requirements of the Primary English National Curriculum over the course of 4 years.

This course will lead pupils step by step through a rich art and design programme covering a wide diversity of art elements, skills and cultural influences.

It will help pupils develop their own creative style, encourage them to learn and experiment with new techniques and to construct and develop imaginative ideas in the form of a sketchpad.

Our experience with Wolsey Hall Oxford has been excellent! Ella is thriving on her Primary homeschooling courses. She is enjoying the creativeness of the English programme and how it allows learning while bringing in her own interests such as a biography on her favourite author.
