Art & Design

At Newlands  Art and Design is a subject area that we celebrate and enjoy across the school.

Our intent is to ensure that our art curriculum inspires our children to think creatively and to gain an appreciation of art. Our Art curriculum provides children with opportunities to produce creative, imaginative work, exploring their own ideas and artistic styles .


Children have the opportunity to explore these ideas and record their experiences, as well as share the work of others and evaluate different creative ideas. They will become confident and proficient in a variety of techniques including drawing, painting, sculpting, as well as other selected craft skills, such as collage, printing, weaving and patterns.
Children develop their knowledge of famous artists, designers and craft makers. Children will also develop their interest and curiosity about art and design through a series of lessons offering skills progression, knowledge progression and offering children the opportunity to ask questions and demonstrate their skills in a variety of ways.


The lessons will offer the chance for children to develop their emotional expression through art to further enhance their personal, social and emotional development.  The structure of our curriculum and progression through skill has been designed to ensure that children cover the skills required to meet the aims of the National Curriculum and through each key stage builds upon skills and knowledge gained in the previous years and Key Stages.
