Thurleigh Primary School

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.  Through exploring a variety of media including drawing, sculpture, painting and printmaking, our children develop key skills.

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.

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 celebrate and showcase the creativity of all children in order to promote a sense of well-being and build self-esteem.
