Through our Art curriculum we aim to enable all of our children at Horfield to explore their creativity. Creativity is at the heart of our curriculum and is intrinsic to all of our teaching. Children produce creative responses; exploring their ideas and recording their experiences in sketchbooks and in finished displayed pieces. The creative arts help children to develop their problem-solving strategies in an enjoyable way so that all curriculum areas are enhanced.
Children at Horfield have opportunities to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art & craft and design techniques. They evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design. Lessons about great artists, designers and craftmakers are delivered enabling pupils to understand the historical and cultural development of different art forms.
