About Art and Design
All children will be taught to develop their techniques, including control and use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increased awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design. That they will use a wide range of materials creatively to design and make a multitude of products and use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination.
Children will develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space and also learn about at range of great artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and make links to their own work.
We strive to teach art and design that will excite, enthuse and grow our children creatively with passion. We have developed a dynamic art and design curriculum that develops skills and knowledge alongside other areas of the curriculum as well improving the children’s knowledge and understanding of artists.
