Art and Design
The Art and Design curriculum we offer our children here at Bredbury St Marks is ambitious, creative and designed to give all our learners the knowledge, skills and creativity to succeed in life.
We offer a structure and sequence of lessons to ensure the children cover the skills required to meet the aims of our unique curriculum.
Our intent is to ensure all pupils produce creative, imaginative work. Children are given the opportunity to explore their ideas and record their experiences, as well as exploring the work of others and evaluate different creative ideas. Our children will become confident and proficient in a variety of techniques including drawing, painting, sculpturing, as well as other selected craft skills, e.g. collage, printing, weaving and patterns. Our children will also develop their knowledge of famous artists, designers and craft makers. The pupils will also develop their interest and curiosity about art and design through a series of lessons offering skills progression, knowledge progression and opportunities to ask questions and demonstrate their skills in a variety of ways.
We want to enable all pupils to feel able to think and act creatively. This means exploring all aspects of creativity: personal and social, exploring art for a variety of reasons, in a variety of contexts. Most importantly, it means enjoying the journey, so that our pupils want to engage in creative activities, and so that they can grow to appreciate and value the importance of art as a highly subjective and individual experience, but one which is capable of bringing people together.
