'Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else.' Sydney Gurewitz Clemens.
What we want to achieve
We believe that Art at Sunnyfields stimulates creativity and imagination whilst giving the children unique opportunities to develop intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially.
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
The children use a wide range of materials and learn the techniques and skills of drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination.
The national curriculum for art and 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.
How we want to achieve it
Every year group learns the core art techniques of painting, drawing and sculpture.
This is our long term curriculum plan for Art.
