CURRICULUM AREA : Art and Design
Purpose of Study:
 Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture and creativity of our nation

At  Calmore Infant School we teach Art and Design through our Integrated Curriculum projects

How we teach Art and design

 In the Foundation Stage (Year R), the children express themselves through art and design in a range of contexts throughout the year by accessing the resources available within continuous provision. They draw their self-portraits and real life observations termly to focus on detail and progression.

In Year 1 and 2 the children will use a range of materials to design and create products, by showing our ideas, experiences and imagination through drawing, painting and sculptures. To research into colour and patterns by creating our own colour mixing paintings in the style of Kandinsky.
