Art and Design
At Longwick, we believe that art is a vital and integral part of children’s education. It provides them with opportunities to develop a range of ways in which they can share and express their individual creativity, independence and self-reflection. It enables pupils to develop a natural sense of wonder and curiosity about the world around them. We also believe Art is a subject in which children can learn the value of making mistakes, developing personal self-expression and understanding the beauty of the natural world around them at Longwick.
Our art curriculum develops creativity, set challenges, and engages and inspires children. It equips them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Our art curriculum has appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to explore and investigate, create and evaluate artwork as set out in the National Curriculum which enables the children to reach and exceed their potential. By providing an accessible and engaging curriculum the children will gain an understanding of the visual elements of art and design (line, tone, texture, colour, pattern, shape, 3D form). It will allow pupils to create art work in a range of mediums with a real purpose by displaying and sharing the work they create and showcasing the skills and progress they have made. The children will learn about a diverse range of great artists, craft markers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
