Art

Intent 

To provide a high-quality art and design education which engages, enthuse and challenges all pupils. Through first hand experiences and having a sense of and create their own works of art and design Pupils are able to communicate what they can see, feel and think through the use of different materials and processes, thinking critically and develop an understanding of art and design.  

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 and Sketching 
  • Painting and Printing 
  • Collage 
  • 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 to equip the next generation of creative pioneers. 

Sketchbooks are introduced to the children in Year 1 and taken with them throughout their primary educational journey. Sketchbooks are used to record, explore and store art ideas and artwork. 

Teaching staff will also have a personal sketch book where they will model skills and techniques to the pupils. The Art subject lead will use these to monitor the quality of the teaching of art and design and where needed, the lead will provide support to enhance staff’s skills. It is the responsibility of all classroom teachers to deliver the art and design curriculum following both the art and design LTP and MTP.
