At Sedbergh Primary School, we believe that Art and Design is an essential part of the curriculum and that it can and should be enjoyed by all.
It is our intent that the Art and Design curriculum stimulates creativity and imagination, that it provides our children with visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the world around them.
Through Art, our children are encouraged to express their ideas and emotions while reflecting on and improving their knowledge about the subject and developing their skills in the art processes and visual elements. Children will develop a wide range of art and craft techniques and invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
Skills and knowledge of different media will be built up through progressive learning and linked to topics taught in school.
It is our intent that our children appreciate the vibrant, artistic community in which they live. They will celebrate and be inspired by artists locally, nationally and from around the world and be able to think critically about their work. In Art & Design lessons children will be encouraged to reflect on their work, share ideas, express opinions, and celebrate their learning.
