Respect, Responsibility and Really Good Manners

Our Art and Design Intent

Art has a very important place in our curriculum. We see art as a vehicle for creativity and individual expression and it provides opportunities for collaborative work. It is an important form of cultural expression and, therefore, has significance and meaning for all our children. Our teaching provides an understanding of all the diverse art forms so that the children experience drawing, painting, collage, textiles, 3D designs, printmaking and digital media.
We have Art Enrichment Days with a whole school focus on one artist or painting and we include art in our themed weeks.
