Our Art Curriculum
At Deeping St James Community Primary School, our ambition for the Art and Design curriculum is to deliver a high quality education that provides the children with the necessary skills and knowledge to develop a love of all areas of the Art curriculum.
Our hope is that our Art and Design curriculum enables children to leave DSJ, not only with a knowledge of key artists and art types that have been influential throughout history, but also with a passion for the subject. We want to provide children of all academic abilities with an outlet that allows them to express themselves and be creative with no boundaries and no fear of failure.
Our intent is to ensure that during their time here, our children feel inspired. Art is an integral part of learning for so many areas of the curriculum. We want children to be able to learn and apply skills that will not only develop their artistic development, but enhance other topic work. Art and Design is at the core of developing a creative child that can “think outside the box.”
Children will develop their interest and curiosity about art and design through a series of lessons offering skills progression, knowledge, and offering the children the opportunity to ask questions and demonstrate skills in a variety of ways.
