Art and Design Curriculum 2014

 

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. At Thorpe Lea we belive that a high quality art and design education should engage, inspireand challlenge all children, equipping them with the knowldege and skills needed to experiment, invent and create individual works of art, craft and design.

 

As children progress, we engage them to think criticallyand develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They will learn how art and design both relect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativitiy and wealth of aour nation. We have included creativity to our school values and we encourage this not only in art, but in all other subjects of the curriculum.

 

Aims
