At Moira Primary School, we are committed to providing a curriculum that inspires creativity, expression, imagination and connection.
We master formal elements of Art such as drawing, painting and sculpture over time and use these skills to design, make and evaluate our own works. We explore ideas and meaning through the work of artists and designers. As we learn about the history, roles and functions of art, children consider the impact that it has on contemporary life and that of different times and cultures.
Our Art and Design curriculum will give children the opportunity to:
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.
We value art as a vehicle for creativity and individual expression. It is important to the development of pupils’ well-being, appreciation of the world and understanding and empathy of others.
