Our curriculum intent for art is that every child will:
- experiment, invent and create own works of art, crafts and design,
- develop a wide vocabulary to understand and talk about art,
- know about great artists, craft makers and designers and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms and
- know and understand how art and design reflect and shape our history and contribute to culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
Children are encouraged to take the knowledge and experiences of the world that they have gained from the rest of the curriculum and develop these through art. The art curriculum is carefully crafted so that children are able to build on ideas and knowledge they have previously learned in other areas. All children are given the opportunity to record their creative and imaginative ideas using a variety of art media.
