ART AND DESIGN

“Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design” – National Curriculum, 2014.

OUR AIMS

  • To learn and develop their skills of drawing, painting, printing, collage, textiles, sculpture and digital Art.
  • To introduce a range of work, which have been carefully planned to develop an understanding of style and art vocabulary.
  • In Art, children are expected to be reflective and evaluate their work, thinking about how they can make changes and improve.
