Art and Design 

At St White’s Primary School, we want to inspire, engage and challenge pupils by equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own works of art. As they progress through the school they will develop a deeper understanding of art and design. They will explore art, artists and creativity and its impact on the world around them. They will have opportunities to develop their knowledge and express their responses and ideas through various mediums. 

The National Curriculum for Art & Design aims to ensure that all pupils: 

· Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences 

· Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques 

· Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design 

· Know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms. 

Opportunities to experience, practise and develop skills acquired are provided across the curriculum as we feel passionately that creativity in all forms not only develops dexterity but enables pupils to make valuable mistakes, make practical decisions and nurtures the imagination. We encourage pupils to participate in a variety of creative experiences as a vehicle to build their confidence, cherish and enjoy the visual arts.        

Here is the sketching challenge, running throughout February!
