Art and Design
Our Vision for Art and Design
At St Mary’s Catholic Primary, Art and Design is embraced as a creative learning experience which allows all children stimulating access to the whole curriculum. Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity, sparking children’s creativity and imagination. For this reason, the subject plays many different roles at St. Mary’s. From storytelling, to representing the changing world around them, to exploring their own emotions and feelings, art is widely taught and used in cross-curricular ways to strengthen children’s knowledge and understanding of our world. As a subject, art is taught through a variety of ways that encourage children to think critically about creative works throughout history as well as inspire the curiosity to create their own work. Pupils engage with their own practice, reflecting on the variety of mediums and techniques that they work with and drawing links between their work and that of well-known artists and designers.
