Art and Design provides children with opportunities to develop a range of ways in which they can share and express their individual creativity, whilst learning about and making links with a wide spectrum of different types of art in our society. Art contributes to children’s personal development in creativity, independence, judgement and self reflection. Moreover, it enables pupils to develop a natural sense of wonder and curiosity about the world around them and therefore links strongly to our school values. The focus is in developing proficiency in art skills including drawing, painting, understanding of colour and shade, and sculpture, with the overall aim of developing a rigorous understanding, critical awareness and inspiration of art and design.
Children will develop their understanding of the visual language of art with effective teaching and considered sequences of lessons and experiences.
