In this section of the website, you will find information about our approach to teaching Art & Design at Neville’s Cross.
What does Art & Design look like at Neville’s Cross?
At Neville’s Cross, we value Art and Design as an important part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum offering enrichment opportunities. The skills and knowledge that children will develop throughout each art topic are mapped out across each year group and throughout the school to ensure progression. The high-quality curriculum we offer will engage, inspire and challenge pupils equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. They are encouraged to express their creative imagination as well as practising and developing mastery in the key processes of art: drawing, painting, printing, textiles and sculpture. We believe that Art and Design contributes to personal development in creativity, independence, judgement and self-reflection. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of Art and Design. They should develop a knowledge of individual artists, individual works and art movements and how they have shaped our history and contributed to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. Displays in classrooms and around school, as well as an annual art gallery, reflect the children’s sense of pride in their artwork and encourage them to reach their full potential.
