Sunnyside Primary Academy


Art Curriculum Intent

Art is one of the highest forms of expression, as such, we aim to equip our children with the knowledge, skills and resilience needed in order to express themselves through the arts.  


We aim for all children to produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences. With opportunity to practise and develop skills, we aim for all to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques. Celebrating their achievements with their peers and their community.  


Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. At Sunnyside, we aim to 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. Recognising and developing the perseverance needed to produce quality pieces of work. 


Through art and design, we aim for children develop a rigorous understanding of how the arts both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. Developing our children's’ understanding of their responsibility towards their development and effect on others. 


Through their school career, children will have a range of opportunities to look at and learn from great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
