Curriculum Intent - Art
As a school, we recognise that Art and Design stimulates creativity and imagination, sets challenges, engages and inspires children and equips them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Children of all abilities are taught to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes.
Cultural diversity is an area that has been identified as something that our pupils would benefit from having a greater awareness of. Consequently, this has been has been reflected in our curriculum choices for Art and Design.
Our Art curriculum builds upon the children's skills of: sketching, drawing, painting, printing, collage, sculpture and 3D work. Wherever appropriate, art is linked to other areas of the curriculum. There is at least one unit of work in each academic year, where the art topic is based on the study of a famous artist and a collection of their work; artists have been chosen specifically to reflect a culturally diverse range of male and female artists and designers.
Our whole school leader for Art is Mrs Drust
