At Therfield First School we are passionate about developing and promoting Art and Design through an enjoyable, creative and cross curricular approach. We aim to provide a visual, tactile and sensory experience and a unique way of understanding and responding to the world. As well as focused high quality teaching we enrich our children’s learning and experiences of Art and Design through a range of opportunities during school time and in after school clubs.
We ensure progression through the years allowing children to build on and develop a range of skills using varied media and processes including drawing, painting, print making sculpture and collage. Children explore ideas and meanings in the work of artists, craftspeople and designers. They learn about the diverse roles and functions of art, craft and design in contemporary life, and in different times and cultures. They learn to understand, appreciate and enjoy the visual arts and the power they have to enrich our personal and public lives.
