The National Curriculum: Art and Design

The National Curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences. They will become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques. Pupils can evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design and have knowledge about great artists, craft makers and designers, understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

Our vision for art at Petersfield

At Petersfield Infant School we believe Art and Design to be an important part of a broad and balanced curriculum which will enable children of all abilities to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern using different materials and processes.

Our intention is that as they progress and develop their skills they will begin to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of Art and Design.

Our wish is to inspire and challenge our children, equipping them with the knowledge, skills and confidence to experiment, invent and create their own works of art and craft and for them to enjoy the process!
