The Wilson Primary School

Art & Design

Our Vision

Art and Design is a creative and therapeutic subject in which children learn to communicate what they see, feel and think through a variety of different materials and mediums. Through providing progressive opportunities in drawing, painting, printing, collage and sculpture; children will develop their skills and techniques, while encouraging them to create their own independent pieces using high quality resources. Alongside this, the use of digital devices allows students to create artwork through experimenting with photo manipulation and painting programmes.

Children will learn from a range of artists, designers, architects and craft makers to strengthen their understanding of the subject's impact on culture, both locally and globally; it is also used as a tool to learn about the past.

Art gives our children the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express their ideas independently and imaginatively.
