Art and Design
Why do we learn Art and Design?
Individual and unique:
Art encourages the uniqueness of every individual in society. At Edwinstree we celebrate and encourage a way to develop the unique qualities of every child, using a variety of multimedia, whether it be drawing, painting, 3D, sculpture, digital, or a mixture thereof.
Art provides the opportunity to promote a sense of awe and wonder at the world around us, allowing each student to learn and develop through their own personal experiences, supported by our Christian Values.
The curriculum is planned to enable all to flourish through a breadth of experiences. Students explore different artists’ work from cave art to the present day and challenge their own understanding of what styles of art they appreciate.
The Art Curriculum has been devised to introduce, develop and gain confidence when creating, researching or evaluating Art and Design. Emphasis is placed on relating their growing knowledge and applying it to their work, whilst developing an awareness of the processes they are using, preparing them for the world they live in.
