Statement of Intent:
Our Art and Design curriculum aims to furnish children with the knowledge and experience of a range of creative techniques, and the opportunity to explore and refine these through their own creative expression. The children will explore and respond to a range of works from artists at a local, national and global level. They will interpret and reproduce their own versions of these works. Opportunities for self-expression and the acknowledgement and appreciation of the artistic expression of others are fundamental to our intent for this subject.
The ‘Big Ideas’:The ‘Big Ideas’ in our Art and Design curriculum are: techniques, exposure and self-expression. These form an integral part of the development of skills and the learning of key concepts in this curriculum area.
