Art Curriculum Intent
We believe that the teaching of Art is integral to our pupils’ creative development providing them with learning and experiences often beyond their sphere of knowledge. It is vital in leading them to an appreciation of human creativity and achievement, which they may not otherwise encounter. We intend to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. We will focus on drawing and painting as key skills to develop as they progress through the school and these will be intentionally taught in each year group, ensuring that our children are competent in these skills by the time they leave the school.
We believe it is important that our pupils recognise the impact art can have on different cultures, both their own and others. Therefore, they will be introduced to the work of key artists, working in different media, from around the world so that they are able to identify how art links to the historical and cultural development of the UK as well as other cultures.
