Art and Design

At Halsnead Primary School, Art and Design should stimulate our children’s imagination and creativity and should engage, inspire and challenge them. Art provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences which enables our children to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. It enables children to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials, while allowing them to develop their own knowledge and skills of the processes involved in Art and Design.

Through learning about the roles and functions of art, our children should be able to reflect on how it has shaped our history and how it continues to contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

As our children progress, they should begin to develop their critical responses to
different forms of art and should be able to evaluate and analyse creative works
using the language of art, craft and design.
