Our Intent in Art
At Sharp Lane Primary School, we recognise the importance of ART in every aspect of daily life.
Our intent is for our pupils to be ASPIRATIONAL by exploring the world of Art and Design around them, providing them with the knowledge that it affects both our environment and lives and gives meaning to the world in which we live. Art is a means in which we can express ourselves.
We want our children to BELIEVE in themselves through projects that inspire, engage and challenge, enabling them to communicate their thoughts, skills and knowledge in creating and presenting work of which they are proud. Children are encouraged to celebrate their own achievements and those of others.
Our children COMMIT themselves to their self expression by applying their knowledge and skills to explore, experiment and take risks, placing value on the process and journey that they take, not just on the finished product. Through this, they develop an understanding that a piece of artwork can change direction or be developed further.
We allow our children to explore and DISCOVER by exposing them to a wide range of disciplines, artists and craftspeople to inspire and stimulate their creativity and imagination. Additionally, as they learn about the history, roles and functions of art, they explore the impact that it has on contemporary life and that of different times and cultures.
