The intention of our Art curriculum is to ensure all pupils produce creative, imaginative work. Children at St James are able to explore their ideas and record their experiences (beginning in EYFS in class portfolios and progressing to independent sketchbook work), as well as exploring the work of others and evaluate different creative ideas. In addition to this, children will progressively develop their confidence and proficiency in a variety of techniques including drawing, painting, 3D, printing, collage and digital media. They will also develop their knowledge of famous artists, designers and craft makers. We have chosen to deliver art thematically through religion/culture, curriculum links and art appreciation to encourage them to naturally become more curious about the world and retrieve key knowledge.
