Art and Design curriculum information

Subject Vision: “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up.” - Pablo Picasso

The vision for our Art and Design curriculum is to encourage and enable our children to develop their creativity and skills by exploring a range of media and materials. As they progress through the school, children learn the skills of drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, textiles, printmaking, photography and graphic design and are given the opportunities to explore and evaluate their ideas. Children will be introduced to a range of different artists and will have opportunities to broaden their knowledge and understanding about the differences and similarities of these artists and make links to their own work.
