Statement of Intent

The purpose of Art and Design Technology is to give pupils the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express their ideas and experiences in a visual, tactile or structural form. The practical nature of the subjects develops pupils’ imagination, problem solving skills and self-esteem.

These two subjects will alternate on a half termly basis.

  • In Art we will be a skill based scheme providing a challenging and creative curriculum covering drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, textiles and 3D work.
  • Design Technology will be developing the skills and knowledge in the areas of mechanics, materials and food.
