Art & Design
We aim for our art and design curriculum to engage, inspire and challenge our children to give them the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
Our curriculum is designed to ensure that all children
- Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences.
- Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design.
- Be familiar with a range of different artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
At Thurleigh Primary School we do not want our Art & Design curriculum to focus solely on the finished product, but rather more on the process. We do not want any of our children to impose their own barriers to learning such as “I can’t draw” or “I’m not artistic”.
We aim for our children to understand that “art” is a process that can be learned if broken down into smaller steps.
We are currently reviewing our Art & Design curriculum to ensure it is up to date and relevant to our children and it uses a range of different stimuli, linked to other learning, to engage, develop and extend our children’s learning.
