Art and Design
Our Art and Design curriculum has been specifically tailored to meet the unique context of our school. It is designed to be broad and balanced, providing all pupils with the opportunity to master their learning and deepen their knowledge, making sense and giving purpose as to why we learn about Art and Design. Teachers will provide pupils with challenging big questions about Art and Design, which will help them change and transform our society, putting their faith into action.
At St Edmund's we follow a broad and balanced Art and Design curriculum. We believe that art, craft and design should engage, inspire and challenge pupils. We aim to give our children the tools and skills they need to invent and create their own masterpieces.
We aim to build high levels of competence in the subject specific skills of:
- Inspiration from artists
- Ideas and techniques
- Art skills (selecting appropriate tools, using tools to create different forms of art)
In 2019 - 2020, the artist in residence Mrs Philips, is working with children and staff in all year groups. This has strengthened both the art curriculum and enriched pupil's learning.
