The Creative Arts

At Parklands we aim to foster an interest in the Creative Arts through providing a range of stimulating activities in visual arts, music , design and technology and drama Our pupils are encouraged to develop their creativity in exploring a variety of  enriched opportunities where new  techniques and skills will evolve our pupils creativity.  Our pupils develop their awareness of a broad spectrum of cultural influences by looking at  the work of artists  and listening to music of widely differing genres. Visiting artists and musicians provide hands on experiences which deepens our pupils  understanding and form lasting impressions to inspire their creativity.We work with the Erewash  Festival Lights organisation  which plans special events working with other local schools. This work  is shared with our local community through art displays and school performances.

Discover Club

We are very proud to offer our pupils the opportunity to take part in the discover awards. Pupils learn about the different elements of art. They explore a famous artist work and are given time to express their own creativity. All the pupils will complete and record their journey which is assessed to  work towards the discover award.
