The National Curriculum for Art and Design aims 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.
The school has a good range of materials and media for a variety of art and craft activities. We have built up a resource base of reproductions of the work of recognised artists and sculptors as examples of works of art for children to appreciate. We have also been able to provide a number of books on the work of notable artists.
