Art, Design and Technology
Art Vision Statement
At Pinhoe, we seek to engage, inspire and challenge our pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own works of art.
We recognise that a creative and high-quality Art curriculum contributes to the development of the whole child (emotionally, physically, socially and cognitively). It provides all children with the opportunity to express themselves imaginatively, celebrating our diversity and developing their understanding of, and response to, the world around them.
As they progress through the school they will develop a deeper understanding of art and design, exploring the impact it has on contemporary life, and that of different times and cultures.
The National Curriculum for Art & 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.
Art should be taught as an individual subject as well as incorporated into learning in other curriculum areas.
