Purpose Of Study
At Langold Dyscarr Community School we recognise that art stimulates creativity, innovation and imagination; providing a special way of understanding and responding to the world. It enables children of all abilities to communicate what they see, think and feel through the use of different mediums and processes.
We wish for all children to acquire the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own artwork that will positively influence their creative confidence throughout their lives. Informed by an appreciation for and critical analysis of artwork created by great artists that have shaped our history and culture, we aim to give children’s own unique artistic styles a chance to SHINE through opportunities which inspire and challenge them to express their ideas.
Art In Our Community

We love creating artwork using natural materials!
Art In Our Local Libraries
We are proud to work with our local library, displaying artwork inspired by our love of reading! We also enjoyed making portrait tiles for the FACES, PLACES exhibition displayed in Worksop Library.
North Notts Journeys BookBench Trail
BookBench 1- Proud To BEE Different
This sculpture was inspired by the BEE values of our school. Pupils created design ideas for the sculpture expressing that it should represent our school and the local community. This design brings their ideas to life combining notions of uniqueness and care for the natural world. It features individually decorated bees and rare bee orchids which are found within our locality.
BookBench 2- Adventure Is Just A Page Away…
This sculpture was inspired by a love of reading for pleasure. This design is a celebration of the freedom that reading brings, creating space in our minds for creativity, happiness and relaxation. It represents how, with the turn of every page, we get lost in words finding ourselves meandering into adventures and other magical worlds. It features a landscape of rolling hills below a blue sky in which colourful kites dance freely.
Christmas Card Competition
Each year Brendan Clarke-Smith holds a constituency Christmas Card competition across Bassetlaw, the winner of the competition and the two runners up have their designs feature on his card which goes out to people across the constituency. Here are our previous competition finalist designs.
Message In A Bottle Top
As part of our Science Week of 2021, we ignited pupils’ creativity by taking part in a new cross-curricular Message in a Bottle Top art programme! We explored ways we can repurpose plastic waste into something beautiful and learn about the effect plastic has on the environment.
