At Pomphlett Primary School, we ensure that the National Curriculum aim of providing a 'high quality art and design education' in order to 'engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design' is central to the development of young artists.
Through our progressive and cross curricular work, we aim for children to explore their own ideas and experiences and express these creatively through drawing, painting, sculpture and various other design techniques. We encourage children to experiment and share ideas, skills and creative ways to communicate their ideas through 2D and 3D art.
We aim to integrate the learning of great artists, craft makers and designers; incorporating art techniques into topic based year group learning. Throughout the school, children are given opportunities to develop their knowledge of artists that are both contemporary and historical from local areas and around the world. This introduces children to a variety of different art forms and techniques as well as making historical and cultural links to enrich and enhance their own work.
