Art and Design

Ambition 

At Brooke Primary Academy, children will:

  • appreciate and evaluate the work of a range of artists and designers
  • develop expertise in drawing, painting and sculpture
  • feel proud of their final pieces of art and celebrate success
  • learn to love art and design and appreciate creativity in today’s society and cultures

Implementation 

Art and Design is taught throughout the school on a rotation cycle with Design Technology. All pupils experience a variety of art and design techniques including: 

  • Drawing 
  • Painting 
  • Printing 
  • 3D Sculpture 

Art and design provides our pupils with visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the ever-changing world. Pupils are inspired by great artists, craft makers and designers whilst understanding the historical and cultural development of art forms. As well as having an enriched art and design education, we want equip the next creative pioneers. 

Art and Design books are introduced to the children in Year 1 and taken with them throughout their primary educational journey. These are used to record, explore and store art ideas and art work.
