Art and Design

Our Curriculum Intent for Art and Design

Live: Art and Design enables children to express themselves in a creative, imaginative manner and through exploration. We intend to teach the children a skills-based curriculum, with individuality and creativeness flowing through everything they do. The children will be encouraged to build on their previous knowledge and will become aware that art and design is all around us, and that it is a huge part of everyone’s life.
Love: It is our intention for children at Our Lady of Lourdes School to develop an interest and love of art in the community and in the wider world, enjoying art from the past and appreciating modern art.
Learn: Children will develop their understanding of the visual language of art with effective teaching and carefully thought out sequences of lessons and experiences. Understanding of the visual elements of art and design (line, tone, texture, colour, pattern, shape, 3D form) will be developed by providing an engaging and accessible curriculum which will enable children to reach their full potential.
