Art & Design

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. At Bentley Heath Primary School, we believe that art and design should engage, inspire, and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design.  

At each phase (KS1, Lower KS2 and Upper KS2), the following disciplines are taught, revisited at a progressively deeper lever during each phase: Painting, Drawing, Sculpture and Craft & Design. Children also learn about a diverse group of artists within their units of work and how this contributes to the culture, diversity, and creativity around us.
