Curriculum

Art

Whenever possible, we link art to other curriculum subjects.

The aims for our art curriculum are taken from the National Curriculum:

  • 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.

Our overall curriculum aims can be seen here: CURRICULUM AIMS
