Art and design
At Botwell House Catholic Primary School we want to provide an Art and Design curriculum that they will not only enjoy but that will provide our children with the knowledge and skills they need to experiment, invent, create, express themselves and evaluate their own works of art, craft and design. As part of a rich and diverse community we intend to capitalise on the experiences our children have to inspire their creative work whilst also making links with other areas of the curriculum.
We strive to use our high-quality carefully sequenced curriculum to inspire, engage and challenge children whilst allowing them to experiment and invent their own works of art, craft and designs.
We want our pupils to become critical thinkers and to develop a rigorous understanding of art and design.
Our aim is for children to master a wide range of techniques when using different materials. As they progress, we will also provide pupils with the opportunity to critically evaluate and analyse their own and others’ artwork, form opinions and encourage them to use artistic language in discussions.
