Art & Design
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. Therefore, at St Ives Primary, we aim to inspire children to think innovatively and develop creative practical procedural understanding through high-quality Art lessons. The core of our Art and Design curriculum builds upon prior learning and progressive skills that enables children to experiment, invent and create their own pieces of art work. Throughout the key stages children are provided with opportunities to develop their techniques, reflect and evaluate their own work and extend their control and use of materials. The skills that children acquire are applied to their cross-curricular topics which subsequently increases their awareness of significant people, allowing them to identify how art and design both reflects and shapes our history, and contributes to the culture, creativity and wealth of our great nation.
