Art & Design Subject Intent
At Howe Dell School we value Art and Design as an important part of our children’s entitlement to a board and balanced curriculum. Art and Design provides our children with the opportunities to develop and extend new skills and express their own individual ideas and creativity.
We aim to provide a broad and balanced program based around the Curriculum with Unity Schools Partnership (CUSP). It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the world around us. We want to develop their imagination and creativity by making connections through their inventive minds. We aim to provide relevant and engaging lessons, with a progression of knowledge and skills woven though, that enable them to record their ideas, observations and insights. Children are able to experiment with an assortment of resources and materials and encouraged to learn different skills and techniques. We encourage them to be proud of what they achieve and what they learn. We want our pupils to know that it’s good to have unique and individual styles.
