In Art and Design, children will​

  • Develop a range of technical skills and become confident working with a range of different media – Form, Colour, Pattern, Printing, Drawing and Texture​
  • Build their cultural literacy by exploring a wide range of art and design from around the world​
  • Develop an awareness of the artistic process of taking inspiration, developing skills, sketching, annotating, building a finished piece and then reflecting on it through self-assessment and discussion with others.​
  • Learn to express themselves through art

Creativity, exploration and curiosity are key, but so too are the disciplinary skills required for children to express themselves. By developing their technical skills, appreciating a wide range of culturally significant artists and studying the styles, techniques and ideas of others, pupils will gain the language they require to express themselves artistically.
