Art and Design
Art and Design Statement of Intent
It is our intent at Cherry Dale Primary School to provide our pupils with an ambitious art curriculum which is rich in knowledge. Our art curriculum is knowledge
rich in terms of artists, architects and designers as well as the artistic concepts that relate to their work shown in different types and styles of art. We plan to
provide meaningful opportunities for our pupils’ own self-expression and give our pupils time to learn who they are as an artist. We want all our pupils to focus
on the different concepts of art (elements) such as line, visual texture, tone, form shape and colour and learn how an artist uses these different elements to
produce art in different styles for example realistic or abstract. We strive to master the foundational concepts first. Our pupils are introduced to different
concepts in art as early as Nursery. Opportunities to explore different media used to make art such as sculpture, architecture and painting are woven through
our art curriculum. We want to ensure that every child can make connections between artists, architects and designers in history. We aim to do this by providing
opportunities for our pupils to evaluate and relating back to the work they have studied previously.
Our ultimate aim is for our pupils to grow a love of the subject.
