Art and Design

At Halebank C of E Primary School, we believe that teaching and learning in art and design is important because it stimulates creativity, imagination and inventiveness. It fires the children’s imagination, inspires and challenges them. It is a fundamental means of personal expression.

Children will develop their understanding of the visual language of art with effective teaching and considered sequences of lessons and experiences. Understanding of the visual elements of art and design (line, tone, texture, colour, pattern, shape, 3D form) will be developed by providing a curriculum which will enable children to reach their full potential.

The process of creating art gives children choices and urges them to make decisions – a crucial skill that translates into all other aspects of life. Art is a language that allows children to express and develop their ideas and emotions; artistic activities are full of processes that help children to grow and stimulate their creativity while nurturing the soul.


“Art is not just a subject to learn, but an activity that you can practise with your hands, your eyes, your whole personality.”
Quentin Blake, Children’s Laureate
