Art & Design
At Almondsbury School, in line with the National Curriculum, our art, craft and design embodies some of the highest forms of human creativity. Our high-quality art and design education aims to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
Children learn about how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation, our school and our community.
The national curriculum for art and 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.
Art & design is taught through the medium of topic and covers the fundamental skills of drawing and painting, printing and collage, textiles and 3D.
