Our Vision for Art and Design

At Lydgate, our vision is for our children to develop their creativity, skills and passion in Art and Design. We aim to engage, inspire and challenge our pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own works of art and design.

We follow the National Curriculum for Art and Design. We also teach discrete art and design skills based lessons across school.

Pupils aim to become proficient in the areas of drawing, painting, sculpture (3D Form), textiles, printmaking and food technology. They produce creative work through the process of designing, making and evaluating their creative ideas.

Pupils learn about a range of great artists and designers such as Lichenstein, Klee and Matisse in KS1 and Monet, William Morris, L.S Lowry in KS2 throughout History. Pupils use their art forms in order to influence their own artwork. Pupils are encouraged to evaluate creative works using the vocabulary of art and design relating to the elements of colour, tone, line, texture and shape/form.
