“Art is a place for children to learn to trust their ideas, themselves and to explore what is possible”
Maryann F Kohl
Art & Design: Our Intent for the subject.
Art allows children to explore, build on and record their own creative and imaginative ideas, building confidence and enjoyment. Children will develop curiosity and problem solving skills that enable them to explore and test out ideas. They will have opportunities to work collaboratively, both inspiring and being inspired. They will become accustomed to looking at their own work and that of others critically and respectfully in order to improve and develop further. Art opens our eyes to creations made to express a sensitive vision about the world, whether real or imaginary. This can be a gateway to understanding different communities, locally and globally.
How it fits within our school vision.
Our school vision is rooted in the Christian faith. As a proud Church of England school, our vision is underpinned by the Church of England’s vision for education. This vision identifies four interlinking aims for all our pupils and, at its heart, lies LOVE (Luke 10:27).
It is this LOVE for God, for our neighbours and ourselves, that forms our Christian foundation to underpin all that we do.
At Walter Evans we believe in a broad and balanced curriculum where all subjects are valued. A broad and balanced curriculum will equip our children with a breadth of knowledge and skills in all areas of the curriculum. We aim for our pupils to ‘Persevere, be curious and inspired through their learning’.
