ART AND DESIGN INTENT AT SOMERVILLE
At Somerville Primary School we believe that Art and Design plays a key role in the development of our pupil’s imagination and creativity. It is an important part of our offer of a broad and balanced curriculum. We aim for our curriculum to provide a broad range of experiences that will enable our pupils to communicate their feelings, thoughts and visions through visual, tactile and sensory experiences. Every pupil in our school will be encouraged to reach their full potential in Art and Design through exploration, making, research, making practical decisions and through the evaluation of their own artwork and artwork created by others. Our Art and Design curriculum aims to broaden the education of our pupils through the exploration of various cultures. Throughout their time at our school, pupils will have opportunities to link Art & Design to cultural and community events as they occur. Our pupils will also take part in whole school themed art weeks/days. Pupils will develop their knowledge of a range of artists, crafts people, designers and sculptors and their work.
Throughout their progressive art journey, children will be working as artists.
