Art & Design Curriculum Intent

At Bushfield Road Infant School, we value Art and Design as an important part of our children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. The intent is to ensure all our pupils produce creative and imaginative work. Art and Design provides our pupils not only with the opportunities to develop and extend their skills, but with the opportunities to express their individual interests, thoughts and ideas.

Children will become confident and proficient in a variety of techniques including drawing, painting and sculpture as well as a variety of other craft skills, e.g. collage, printing and weaving. Children will be introduced to a range of art work and develop knowledge of the styles and vocabulary used by famous artists, designers and craft makers. The skills they acquire are also applied to our cross curricular themes and quality texts, allowing children to use their art skills to reflect on and explore topics in greater depth.

Pupils will be clear about what the intended outcomes are and have a means to measure their own work against this. In Art, our pupils are expected to be reflective and evaluate their work, think about how they can make changes and keep improving.
