Art and Design has the ability to inspire, motivate and instil a sense of creativity like no other subject. There is no right or wrong answer, just opportunities that everyone can join in with. The range of styles and mediums means there is something for everyone.
At Roe Farm, the core elements of the Art and Design curriculum come from the Chris Quigley scheme with lots of opportunities to explore other mediums and practice skills through other subject topics. Each year group studies an art period, finding out about its origins and inspirations, famous artists of this time and the works of art they produced. Pupils in all year groups develop the knowledge and skills through the use of sketchbooks, then using this inspiration to create their own art work.
