“The intent of our Art curriculum is to deliver high-quality lessons that inspire all pupils to use their imaginations and develop their creativity. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to strengthen and develop their artistic skills which will support a wide range of artistic techniques. We want to provide opportunities to allow children to express themselves individually whilst having the chance to study the work of world artists. This will help to embed our values including resilience and happiness.”


Art and Design at St. Michael’s

At St. Michael’s Church School we aim to provide children with an art and design education that engages, inspires and challenges them. We want to allow children the chance to design, explore, invent and create individual pieces of art. Children are taught to critically evaluate and improve their work. As the children progress through school, they will learn about great artists, craft makers and designers and will understand the history and cultural development of their art form.
