Art and Design

At Ravensmere Infant School we value the arts and strongly promote learning through creativity in all areas of the curriculum. ‘Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should 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. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.’ National Curriculum 2014 The art provision at our school provides pupils with a high quality broad and varied experience which encourages all pupils to view themselves and develop as ‘real artists’. Within this subject our pupils feel a strong sense of enjoyment, aspiration and achievement. At Ravensmere Infant School, we aim to ensure that all pupils: • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques • evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms
