Art Curriculum Intent

  Our Art Curriculum develops children’s understanding of different artists, art forms and promotes independence to express themselves how they choose. Children will be thinking about their feelings, interests and likes to develop mindfulness through all art forms. 


The National Curriculum for Art and Design (2014) has the following aims. That all pupils should:

1) Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences

2) Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques

3) Evaluate and analyse artistic works using the language of art, craft and design

4) Know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical development of their art forms


Our four progress objectives are:

1) Generating Ideas: The skills of designing and developing ideas

2) Making: The skills of making art, craft and design

3) Evaluating: The skills of judgement and evaluation 

4) Knowledge: Knowledge of both technical process and cultural context
