Art and Design

Our Art and Design curriculum introduces the children to a range of artists.

During their time with us, the children will revisit familiar artists and each year group, will be introduced to a new piece of the artist’s work.

Children use a range of media and are taught specific skills to use media and to express their ideas through a range of experiences.

Our Art and Design programme introduces the children to six aspects of art learning throughout a two year rolling programme.

Our Art and Design curriculum develops skills in

  • Making: painting, drawing, printing, creating 2 & 3D art and crafting
  • Generating ideas and taking inspiration from a range of artists and crafts people
  • Formal elements: colour, form, line, pattern, shape, texture and tone
  • Knowledge of artists' work and techniques
  • Evaluating: critiquing their own work and that of others
