Art & DT
We aim for children to develop a love of art in a wide variety of forms. High-quality art lessons inspire children to think innovatively and creatively. We value art and design as an important part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. Art and design provides the children of WSG with opportunities to develop and extend their skills and an opportunity to express their individual interests, thoughts and ideas.
We believe that art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and
As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. Our art curriculum provides children with opportunities to develop their skills using a range of media and materials. Children learn the skills of drawing, painting, printing, collage, textiles, 3D
work and digital art and are given the opportunity to explore and evaluate different creative ideas.
