Art                 

Intent: 

Art, craft and design inspire creativity. Our art and design schema will engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Children will develop the skills to think critically about artists and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They will also develop an understanding of how art and design both reflect and shape our history and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our city and nation. We will sign-post local galleries and events to enhance the children’s learning.
