Art and Design

At St Alban's we are artists and designers!

"Every child is an artist."   Picasso



We want all our children to develop and experience:

  • a real passion for art, design and creativity.

  • the ability to use visual language skillfully and convincingly (for example, line, shape, pattern, colour, texture, form) to express emotions, interpret observations, convey insights and accentuate their individuality.

  • the ability to communicate fluently in visual and tactile form.

  • the ability to draw confidently and adventurously from observation, memory and imagination.

  • the ability to explore and invent marks, develop and deconstruct ideas and communicate perceptively and powerfully through purposeful drawing in 2D, 3D or digital media.

  • an impressive knowledge and understanding of other artists, craftmakers and designers.

  • the ability to think and act like creative practitioners by using their knowledge and understanding to inform, inspire and interpret ideas, observations and feelings.

  • independence, initiative and originality which they can use to develop their creativity.

  • the ability to select and use materials, processes and techniques skillfully and inventively to realise intentions and capitalise on the unexpected.

  • the ability to reflect on, analyse and critically evaluate their own work and that of others.
