Intent of Art

Please see below for an overview of Art.

Our creative art curriculum is coherent, planned, sequenced, progressive, challenging and aims to meet all the requirements of the National Curriculum from EYFS to year 6. It gives opportunities for mastery helping all children to aspire, to achieve the best they can in all the learning they explore.
Our Art and Design curriculum is designed to meet the context of our school. It equips our children with the knowledge, skills and attitude to master their learning in Art and be confident learners now and for life.
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should 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. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more
rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
At St. Paul’s we aim for our children to develop and extend their own learning in Art and Design and an opportunity to express their individual interests, thoughts and ideas. In order to do this, the aims at our school are to ensure that all pupils:
• 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.
