'There is no must in art because art is free.' Kandinsky 

The Art and Design curriculum is structured around core skills in drawing, painting and other techniques and processes. Each year group has clear guidance and progression for the knowledge, key elements and concepts, exploration of media and ideas and reference to work of other artists which informs planning.

These elements form the concepts for the sequencing of learning across school:

  • Skills
  • Knowledge and key elements
  • Explore and experiment with media and ideas
  • Reference to work of other artists
  • Outcome

Each year group plans developments in these concepts through their class units of work which are evident on the subject knowledge map.
