Curriculum Statement of Intent for Art and Design
As enthusiastic artists at Black Horse Hill Infant School, children develop their creative and imaginative talents through learning a variety of skills and techniques, helping them to become confident, resilient artists. During their journey at school, children will be exposed to the work of great artists, allowing them to critically reflect upon and integrate techniques in their own work. The overarching aim is for all children to develop a love of art that will stay with them for life.
