The intent for Art at Sandown School is for the children to build upon a skill based curriculum to enable creativity to develop and flourish. Through a carefully managed small step approach the children will apply skills with greater independence and increasing experimentation in school, at home and into their future lives. We aim to develop self-confidence and a sense of pride in their achievements by allowing time for reflection and review.
The children should leave the school having become:
- increasingly confident in drawing, painting and sculpture techniques
- able to identify and talk about the work of great artists, craft makers, designers and architects
- able to discuss and annotate their work and ideas and make comparisons with that of artists
- confident to use the language of art, craft and design.
