Statement of Intent
At St Mary’s we aim to provide an art curriculum which will enable each child to reach their full potential in learning in art, through investigating and making, through research and the development of skills and through their evaluation of their own art and that made by others. Our art and design education will 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. The children will be able to think critically and develop a deep understanding of art and design. They will know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
The Subject Leader for Art is Lesley Mudd
