Art Intent

At Storrington Primary School we work hard to provide a rich environment in which we encourage and value creativity.  Art Education has two strands: creation and evaluation.  The creative element involves children in using materials and equipment to represent objects realistically and imaginatively, and to express ideas and feelings.  The evaluative element enables pupils to develop skills in evaluating their own work and that of other artists and to understand the value and significance of art in society.

The curriculum has appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to explore and investigate, create and evaluate artwork as set out in the National Curriculum and so will enable the children to reach and exceed their potential The curriculum has appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to explore and investigate, create and evaluate artwork as set out in the National Curriculum and so will enable the children to reach and exceed their potential

 

 We seek to provide a balanced and progressive programme of art for all children throughout the school and to build on previous experience and extend capabilities further. As appropriate we link our art planning to the topic being studied, it is however sometimes necessary to teach skills separately before they are used in topic work or to ensure progression within the Art curriculum. We want art to be enjoyed inside and outside of school and link it to our outdoor learning. We also have an art studio in the playground run by children to enable art activities during playtimes.
