Our Art and Design Curriculum
At Barnwell Academy our art and design curriculum equips children with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Children are taught to think critically and know how art and design both reflect and shape our history and contributes to the culture and creativity of Britain.
Children have the opportunity to produce creative work, explore ideas and record their experiences. They are encouraged and inspired to become proficient in drawing, painting and other art, craft and design techniques. Children are taught specific subject vocabulary to enable them to analyse and evaluate creative works. They investigate great artists and designers to enable them to understand the cultural development of their art forms and use their influence in their own work.
