We follow the National Curriculum Objectives for Art and plan different activities for each year group to give the children an opportunity to explore different mediums, materials, textures and form. Each year group studies different artists and this allows our children to experience a range of cultures and concepts.
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. Art and Design teaching in Nettlesworth Primary School provides and inspires personal expression, cultural understanding, creative and practical responses, promoting imaginative risk taking. The art and design education that we deliver equips pupils with the knowledge and skills to experiment, create and refine their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress through Nettlesworth Primary School, they become able to think creatively and critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of the many disciplines within art, craft and design and how they shape their history and future. This enables pupils to contribute as confident citizens and future professionals to the culture, creativity, economic success and emotional wellbeing of our society. The curriculum develops pupils’ cultural capital, through providing enriching experiences
