At Acomb First School, we recognise that Art and Design stimulates creativity, imagination and self-expression. We aim to provide children with the confidence and support they need to be able to explore art in their own way, develop and refine their skills and create visually pleasing successful final pieces, which is a representation of their personality and being.

Our Art and Design curriculum is planned carefully and meticulously, ensuring that all our children can have access to different Art and Crafts, and have the opportunity to develop basic skills and reinforce skills every year showing clear progression throughout their time at Acomb.

Through learning about a diverse range of Art and Crafts and artists, from various cultures, we hope to not only develop the children’s passion and love of the subject but also build a respect, natural inquisitiveness and an appreciation of art in all its forms, which they may carry with them throughout their lives.
