At Matthew Arnold Primary School, we believe that each and every child should have access to rich and broad Art and Design curriculum that enables them to express their creativity. We believe that our curriculum is creative and inspiring whilst also being challenging for every pupil. We aim to provide our children with the skills to become critical thinkers, developing a rigorous understanding of art, design and some of the great artists and architects. Furthermore, we believe that we provide an Art and Design curriculum which enables our children to develop their thinking and questioning skills through research and design.
Children are given the opportunity to work with a range of media which is built on from EYFS, KS1 and into KS2. Our progressive planning allows for children to build on their existing skills. Children are given the opportunity to explore many different areas of Art and Design including sketching, sculpture, painting including the use of warm and cool colours and emotions, collage and much more.
