Art and Design & Technology allow pupils at Lewis Street and Christ Church to explore their creativity and try different methods to express their own ideas. Inspired by our Cornerstones topics the Art and Design & Technology curriculum aims to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art and design. Pupils also learn about the work of great artists and designers, emulating their work using a variety of materials, styles and techniques.
Linking the Art and Design & Technology curriculum to the Cornerstones topics helps provide context to the artwork and designs produced by children. This allows them to produced striking pieces of work linked to their literacy, Geography and History studies which are proudly displayed in classrooms and across the school. Skills are further embedded through collaboration with local artists and designers, designing and producing class based pieces of artwork which is again displayed throughout the school.
