Art and Design

Art lessons provide children with the practical skills of drawing, painting, sculpting, designing and making.   Pupils develop their own ideas and thoughts on the work of others.

Children have lots of opportunities to immerse themselves in art as throughout school,  art is topic related.

 

The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
  • evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms
