Art and Design

At St Oswald’s all children will be taught art through both specific art and cross curricular lessons. They will develop their techniques, including control and use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increased awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design. They will use a wide range of materials creatively to design and make a multitude of products and use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination.

Children will develop a wide range of art and design techniques using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. They will also learn about a range of great artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and make links to their own work.

Teaching is directed at challenging children to think critically and develop a rigorous understanding of art and design. Children will learn about how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. We strive to teach art and design that will excite, enthuse and inspire our children creatively, valuing work produced by all abilities.

We have a dynamic art and design curriculum that develops skills and knowledge alongside other areas of the curriculum as well improving the children’s knowledge and understanding of artists.

Our subject lead for Art and Design is Miss Greenwood.

Extra curricular art, design, craft and drawing clubs will take place throughout the year, so please encourage your child to join.
