Subject Leader – Mrs Llewellyn
As stated in the new National Curriculum art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. At Myrtle Park we strive to provide a high-quality art and design education which will 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.
Through the stimulus of themed weeks, event days and invited artists into school the children are exposed to a wide variety of creative forms. Through topics and themes and the interlinking of other subjects with art and design the children are appreciating how art and design reflect and have shaped our history. They are encouraged to think critically and in turn develop a deeper understanding of art and design.
The opportunities and experiences provided via our Linking Project and through our Religious Education programme allow the children to see how art and design also contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
