Art and Design Intent

                            "To encourage children to develop artistic skills, express their own
                             creative ideas and grow in confidence whilst experimenting with
                                                      different elements of art and design.


At Glade Academy, Art and Design is a vital part our children’s broad and balanced curriculum. We offer the children opportunities to develop skills and their own expressive ideas, thus allowing them to become confident and successful individuals.

Art and design, along with craft are an integral part of a child’s need to be creative. Our quality Art and Design education engages, inspires and challenges children alongside furnishing them with the skills and knowledge to be inventive, experimental and creative with their own pieces.

Critical thinking is encouraged to help develop an understanding of Art and Design. Knowing how the subject contributes to our culture and history is fundamental in respecting the work of artists and craft makers.

Teaching is based upon the National Curriculum for Art and Design with strong cross curricular links made, ensuring a structured approach.
