Art & Design

Intent 

 

We believe art should stimulate pupil’s interests and develop their skills within the art curriculum. We aim for pupils to  develop a sense of creativity and imagination  through producing art. We teach pupils to explore a variety of media, tools and techniques.  By doing this, pupils investigate and combine visual and tactile qualities of materials and processes to produce art work. We also teach pupils to  understand the role and purpose of Artists, Crafts people and Designers working in different times and cultures.  

 

Implementation  

 

Art  is planned using the National Curriculum. It is taught  in correlation with  the topic-based curriculum  for the half term  and this might be taught weekly or in a ‘block’.  Each half term there is a focus on a particular  art  skill. Every year group will have opportunities to  learn about a range of artists and develop their art skills in drawing, painting, printing and sculpting.  

 

Impact  

 

As a result of our  art  curriculum, all pupils across the school develop an interest and a passion for  art.  All pupils develop a range of knowledge and skills, which they can embed into their own lives as they progress throughout the school. By engaging in our art curriculum, children develop their self-expression, risk taking, creativity, confidence and communication skills.  Through art, children learn to  make informed value judgements and judgements of an aesthetic and practical nature. They  build the  ability to understand, appreciate and enjoy the visual arts, which  has the power to enrich children’s lives.  Art is monitored through planning  scrutinies, sketchbook looks, pupil voice and staff surveys to ensure that we provide timely support to both staff and pupils, therefore continually  improving  and raising  standards.
