“Art has the power to transform, to illuminate, to educate, inspire and motivate.”
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
We are strong believers that "every child is an artist" at Warden House Primary School. As part of our broad and balanced curriculum, we equip the children with the knowledge and skills needed to express their individual interests and ideas. Our high-quality art education engages, inspires and challenges pupils whilst providing them with opportunities to develop skills to explore, experiment, create and invent their own works of art.
As artists, children should be able to critically evaluate their work and the work of others, taking influence from well-known artists and world cultures and adapt their work accordingly. As their skill set progresses, they should understand how art has changed their landscape, culture and history whilst fostering a love and enjoyment of creativity.
Our art curriculum ensures children experience a carefully-designed balance of art from across the globe incorporating learning about artists and art from a range of backgrounds, genders and cultures.
We are currently working to achieve "Artsmark" accreditation as a school and plan to submit a portfolio of evidence for assessment in the Spring term 2023.
