Art and Design


At HCFS we aim to deliver a high quality art and design curriculum which engages, inspires and challenges all pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Children are encouraged to think critically to develop a rigorous understanding of the subject as well as an understanding of how design has shaped our history and contributed to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. Children will be proud of their art work and will be able to discuss and critic works of art that they are exposed to. Art work is evidenced through cross curricular links.
