We teach art through the core knowledge curriculum with a focus on progression of skills. We aim to provide an art curriculum that is purposeful and engages, inspires and challenges our pupils. Art for most children is a natural form of expression and a source of great pleasure. We aim to increase confidence and competence in the use of different media, such as pencil, charcoal, paint, collage, printing, inks, textiles and clay. Children are encouraged to take risks and experiment and then reflect. We promote the necessary skills for our children to develop their natural ability to be expressive and creative, and we aim to instil pride by achieving finished work that is of a high standard. In addition, we expose children to the work of famous artists from across the ages and expose them to a variety of art work which allows them to develop their understanding of what ‘art’ is.
