Art and Design

A high-quality Art and design education embodies some of the highest forms of human creativity. It will 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. Building on this, they will be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of Art and design. They will also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

Art and Design Focus 2022/2023

Bretherton Primary School is continually committed to encouraging creativity through a wide variety of forms and expression. This year we begin our ArtsMark focus ensuring we develop our links to a variety of educational settings and expand our pupil experience to include music, theatre and dance as forms of artistic expression. We will ensure we provide ample opportunity for the application of those skills this year. Pupils will be given opportunities to explore a range of materials, not only in drawing and painting, but by practising printing and collage, 3D art, exploring textiles and sculpture and utilising digital media, which is proving ever more useful. We aim to stimulate creativity and imagination and provide access to a number of tactile, visual and sensory experiences. Pupils are encouraged to acquire such new skills and processes in order to develop their artistic creativity across the curriculum. Curriculum Maestro provides pupils with many exciting topic-related Art opportunities and has proved an exciting addition to the Art experience this year.
