Through Art and Design we encourage and expand children’s creativity and expression. We aim to provide children with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. We promote children’s self- confidence and encourage them to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design.
We ensure that children have the key skills and knowledge to:
- 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.
