Art and Design
Creativity takes courage
Art and Design contributes to the growth of the whole child emotionally, aesthetically, socially and cognitively. It provides children with the chance to express themselves artistically, imaginatively and develop their understanding of, and respond to the world around them. Pupils are introduced to many visual, tactile and sensory experiences. Our aim is for art and design to be taught as part of a progressive curriculum, where we plan and sequence art lessons carefully to build upon previous experiences and learning.
The National Curriculum for Art and Design aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Can produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences.
- Can become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.
- Can evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design.
- Are informed about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
