Art and Design 


'Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else.'

                                                                                                                   Sydney Gurewitz Clemens

'Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once you grow up.'

                                                                                                                   Pablo Picasso

During art lessons in our school you will see:




children who are taught to communicate artistic ideas via a range of mediums. Our children are encouraged to discuss works of art using appropriate artistic vocabulary and terminology. Children are encouraged to express likes and dislikes when it comes to art. They are encouraged to discuss how pieces of art make them feel and what they believe the artist was trying to convey through their work.




children who work collaboratively on larger art projects, displays and shows. Children are encouraged to offer specific and helpful critique to peers while also learning how to receive critique for their classmates. 




children who create work in a range of mediums and in a range of different scales.




children who understand how artists discuss current affairs / express political messages through their art. Our children are encouraged to express their beliefs through their work.




children who are able to empathise with the feelings of an artist while they were making a work. They are also encouraged to discuss the feelings of any subjects who may be included in pieces of art.


Cultural Awareness


children who have an awareness of key artists and art works from a wide range cultures. Our children are encouraged to admire beauty in all its forms.




children who show pride in their use of taught artistic techniques, skills and the presentation of their final piece. Our children are encouraged to receive critique and to redraft a piece if necessary.
