Art and Design

Subject Leader: Mrs. Joanne Hodder


All Harby pupils are encouraged to achieve their full potential in art. All children’s artwork is valued and we aim to instil a lifelong appreciation of the visual world. All pupils make progress in art though challenging and varied opportunities to develop skills, knowledge and independent thinking.

Art teaching in our school will inspire creativity and contribute to the children’s love of the visual art world. It will also develop the unique skills needed for making a range of artworks. Through valuing the pupils’ work, and recognising their knowledge and understanding, we will contribute to the children’s personal development, give them confidence and above all enthusiasm for creating and appreciating art.

At Harby Primary School we aim to develop skills in the following areas:-

  • Develop and stimulate children’s imagination and creativity by providing a range of visual, tactile and sensory experiences.
  • Develop children’s aesthetic sensibilities and enable them to make informed judgements about art.
  • Develop children’s understanding of colour, form, texture and pattern. Provide particular activities that give children the ability and skills to realise their ideas in drawing, painting, sculpture and other craft techniques.
  • To know about great artists, craft makers and designers and understand the historical and cultural development of their artwork.

Develop skills in observation and analysis and critical responses to their own work and those of others.
