Art and design
Intent - We aim to…
Enable high quality visual arts teaching and learning with a holistic curriculum nurturing creative thinking skills and helping to ensure our children learn through art, as well as about art. By exploring why art is relevant to all our lives, we aim to make certain that children feel entitled to develop their creativity, and understand their place in the world as creative, confident beings.
Learning through a creative curriculum builds confidence, resilience and open-mindedness, allowing imaginative thinking across the curriculum and in their own lives. Children will explore, experience, interact with and critique Art first-hand in as many ways as possible, from gallery trips to workshops, in-class and whole school sharing opportunities, meeting artists and engaging in large-scale art projects across disciplines.
