Meet our Art and Design co-ordinator, Miss Mills.

Art and Design at Alresford Primary School

At Alresford, we want every pupil to become a confident and competent user of art and design. Our art and design curriculum gives children the opportunity to express their creativity in the highest form. The purpose of our teaching is to engage, inspire and challenge pupils and equip them with the knowledge and skills needed for them to create their own designs and works of art. Children will be given opportunities to develop a deep and critical understanding of art and design, know how art and design has shaped history, and how it contributes to our culture.

Our Aims

All children will be given the opportunity:

  • To know a variety of artists, craft makers and designers and how their art has been shaped by and has influenced our history and culture.
  • To understand how art and design is a creative expression and to feel confident in their individuality through the unique work they produce.
  • To develop skills in a variety of different art, craft and design techniques.
  • To be able to evaluate their work and strive to progress as artists, designers and craft makers.
