Art and Design at St. Marys 

At St Mary’s we believe that Art inspires, engages and challenges pupils, therefore providing them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent, create, develop and refine their own works of art, craft and design. To ensure progression, skills and knowledge have been mapped out across the school, so that the children can achieve the appropriate depth of knowledge. Our curriculum offers all children the privilege of a broad developmental experience in both two and three dimensional art, together with the opportunities to enjoy, appreciate, discuss and critically respond to a variety of art, craft and design forms. Each topic focuses on a different artist, allowing the children to experience many styles and to be inspired by.
