The National Curriculum states that Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. In Art and Design, we aim to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, giving them the knowledge and freedom to experiment with creating their own works of art, craft and design.
Our key aims for children at Roundwood are:
- To produce creative work;
- To become proficient in drawing, painting and sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques;
- To evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design;
- To know about great artists and craftsmen and understand the cultural and historical development of their art forms
Through a structured programme of art and design lessons, children develop their knowledge of core skills and experience a range of different art forms as they progress through the school.
Here are some examples of their learning:
