Art

Art and design stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a unique way of understanding and responding to the world. The children use colour, form, texture, pattern and different materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think. They explore the ideas of other artists. The children are given a breadth of experiences and their work is displayed and celebrated throughout the school and within the local community.

The 2014 national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:

•       produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences;

•       become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques;

•       evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design;

•       know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
