Art

The aims of our Art curriculum are:

  • To enable children to record from first-hand experience and from imagination, and to select their own ideas to use in their work.
  • To develop creativity and imagination through a range of complex activities.
  • To improve the children's ability to control materials, tools and techniques.
  • To increase their critical awareness of the roles and purposes of art and design in different times and cultures.
  • To develop increasing confidence in the use of visual and tactile elements and materials.
  • To foster an enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts and a knowledge of artists, craftspeople and designers.
