Through our Art and Design curriculum we aim to develop the imagination, stimulate creativity, awaken sensitivity, encourage appreciation, direct observation, develop practical skills and foster in each child the capacity to be successfully creative.
We aim to provide pupils with a variety of experiences where exploration and technical ability can be developed and nurtured. Children have the opportunity to experiment and improve their skills in drawing, painting, sculpture, textiles, collage, printmaking and digital media.
Through the use of a variety of materials and techniques, we help all children to respond creatively to their surroundings and learn to make informed, valued judgements and aesthetic and practical decisions about their own and others artwork. The work of artists, craftspeople and designers, in both contemporary life and in different times and cultures, are used to support and provide inspiration for children’s own artwork. This in turn, promotes interest and helps pupils to strive for higher standards.
Visual arts are a strong form of communication: children’s works are displayed in classrooms and corridors to inspire creativity in their audience. We take great pride in the artwork that we produce as we aim to inspire the artist in everyone!
