A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge all pupils. The art curriculum in our school allows children to experiment with a wide variety of resources in order to invent and create their own individual works of art. We aim to develop and encourage children’s natural creativity so that they can become confident and enthusiastic artists. We believe that children should be given the opportunity to enjoy, discuss and respond to a variety of art, craft and design forms.The progression of skills taught across the key stages varies from drawing with a wide range of implements such as charcoal, pencil, crayon, chalk, pens and pencils etc. Children are encouraged to form different shapes, tones and textures. Children are exploring digital media, painting, 3D and collages. Children in KS2 are able to compare ideas, methods and approaches in their own work and others’ work and say what they think and feel about them. It is important for children to understand how art has shaped our history and contributed to cultures around the world.
