Art & Design




Our Vision for Art and Design

Art and design gives us the freedom to enter other worlds, be creative and express ourselves.

 At Lidget Green we want our art and design curriculum to:

Inspire and challenge our children

Stimulate creativity and imagination

Help develop a range of skills and techniques

Be the door to other people, places and cultures

Encourage the use of imagination and original thought.

Provide opportunities to learn about the world in which we live.

Explore ideas and meaning through the work of artists and designers

Be accessible to all, so everyone has a sense of their own achievement

Encourage our children to explore and express themselves using a wide variety of media



Curriculum Definition

“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, creativity and wealth of our nation.” National Curriculum, 2014
