Art and design is a practical, creative subject that gives pupils the opportunity to explore their imagination, generate ideas and acquire skills. It enables children to communicate what they see feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern, and different materials and processes.

At Stanburn we recognise that Art often contributes to and enhances cross curricular themes. In addition, Art projects are planned to systematically develop children’s ability in creating 2D and 3D work. Children learn about different materials and techniques, and about the world of art, craft and design, recognising the achievements of artists, designers and craftspeople from many different times and cultures.

The study of Art and design provides children with an opportunity to engage in a variety of sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the world. Children learn to make informed judgements and are encouraged to develop their critical and creative thinking.

Art and design at Stanburn values pupils’ originality and encourages them to be more inquisitive, persistent and imaginative.
