Our art curriculum equips children with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. We intend that our children will have the opportunity to enjoy Art and Design in its many forms and acquire the skills and technical vocabulary to critique and appreciate a range of Artists from different periods, cultures and genres.

We intend of our curriculum to teach the children to think critically about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms and how they impact on our lives today.


Our Art Curriculum is made up of Four strands:

  • Mastery in drawing, painting and sculpture
  • Experience of other additional art forms
  • Illustration of work 
  • Development of art appreciation.

The following high dividend-concepts have been identified as part of the art and design curriculum:

  • Colour,
  • Line,
  • Tone,
  • Texture,
  • Pattern,
  • Shape and
  • Form

These strands form the Big Ideas’ through which all art forms will be taught, and teachers will make explicit reference to where children have met these concepts before in the curriculum.

Weston Favell Primary School works in partnership with the National Gallery. During their time in school, children develop an appreciation by exploring artists and works within the National Gallery’s collection. Our Year 4 children take part in the Take One Picture project.
