Art Intent 

 

Creativity takes courage.

Henri Matisse

At Colburn Community Primary School, we believe that art and creativity is an important part of both the curriculum and of our children’s well-being. Our art curriculum is designed to provide our children with opportunities to delve deeply into existing artwork; studying the work, the style, the artist, as well as the history and culture surrounding the pieces. Children will be exposed to a diverse range of artists during their primary education and they will be supported in using different, quality pieces of artwork in order to inspire their own work. We pride ourselves in our art provision as we endeavour to supply our children with a wide range of high quality materials, resources and tools.

By the end of their time in Colburn Community Primary School, our children will establish themselves as courageous, competent artists with their own preferred styles and techniques.
