We aim to foster a positive attitude to art while giving pupils success, pleasure, enjoyment and confidence in their work. We hope to develop a broad understanding of the meaning, significance and contribution of art, craft and design and an appreciation of the aesthetic qualities of life, whilst ensuring that pupils have access to opportunities provided by the National Curriculum programme of study.
The aims of art are taken from the National Curriculum 2014, are to ensure that all pupils:
- produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
- become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
- evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
- know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms
