Art and Design
We promote art, craft and design as an engaging, practical, and creative subject to encourage the children’s individual and collaborative creativity, expression of ideas, attitudes, values and work. Through their active participation pupils learn to explore their imagination, generate ideas, acquire skills and apply judgement. The children develop their confidence, enthusiasm, knowledge and understanding as well as their skills. They learn about the materials and techniques they use and about the world of art, craft and design, recognising the achievements of artists, designers and craftspeople from different times and cultures.
Our teaching aims to develop and encourage critical and creative thinking. Incorporated in cross-curricular teaching, art, craft and design aid enriching, extending and consolidating learning in a variety of curriculum contexts. We aim to develop understanding of all the different art forms. The children therefore experience drawing, painting, collage, textiles, 3D designs, printmaking and digital media throughout their schooling.
