KS1 and 2 Art and Design Curriculum Statement

Our approach to teaching Art and Design at Houghton Primary School

In order that our learners are enabled to develop the key characteristics of artists and designers we are committed to developing our curriculum to provide as many rich artistic experiences as possible to enable our children to be exposed to wonderful art and design, to be inspired by it and to develop the skills necessary to accomplish similar and original work and to have the confidence and passion to be able to enjoy the experience. We are building opportunities into the curriculum to enable this to happen, working thematically to look for and act upon opportunities to explore different media. We aim to create large group pieces as well as individual work to display and celebrate. As you walk through our school we want you to feel that art is important, valued and celebrated.
