Art & Design

At Carr Head Primary School, our intent is to ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to explore their ideas, record their experiences, explore the work of others, and evaluate different creative ideas to enable them to produce creative, imaginative work. Children will become confident in a variety of techniques including drawing, painting, sculpting, as well as other selected craft skills, e.g. collage, printing, weaving and patterns. Children will also develop their knowledge of famous artists, designers and craft makers. Children will develop their interest and curiosity about art and design through a series of lessons offering skills progression, knowledge progression and the opportunity to ask questions and demonstrate their skills in a variety of ways.  Art and Design lessons will offer the chance for children to develop their emotional expression through art and become confident, to express themselves and further enhance their personal, social and emotional development.  Sketchbooks are used as a space to think creatively, critically and with imagination.
