Our intent is to ensure that all pupils produce creative, imaginative work. Children can explore their ideas, record their experiences, as well as exploring the work of others, and evaluate different creative ideas. Pupils will become confident and proficient in a variety of techniques including drawing, painting, sculpting, as well as other selected craft skills, e.g. collage, printing, weaving and patterns. We will also develop their knowledge of famous artists, designers and craft makers, while developing their interest, and curiosity about art and design through a series of lessons offering skills progression, knowledge progression and offering children the opportunity to ask questions and demonstrate their skills in a variety of ways. Art will offer the chance for children to develop their emotional expression through to further enhance their personal, social and emotional development.
Each key stage focuses on different projects to ensure continued interest in the subject as well as acquiring new knowledge. The themes we have use develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design. Children should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. We have suggested a specific series of lessons for each year group, which will offer structure and narrative.
Teachers and pupils enjoy Art and design teaching and learning across school. Teachers have higher expectations and more quality evidence is presented in a variety of ways. All children use technical vocabulary accurately and pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the skills and processes specified. Children improve their enquiry skills and inquisitiveness about the world around them, and their impact through art and design on the world. Children will become more confident in analysing their work and giving their opinion on their own and other works of art. Children show competences in improving their resilience and perseverance by continually evaluating and improving their work. All children in school can speak confidently about their art and design work and their skills.
