Art Curriculum

Art Intent

At Trinity Croft we encourage the children to find enjoyment, fulfilment and achievement in art, craft and design and to see themselves as artists, designers and craft workers. We value the art work of our children and celebrate their achievements with high quality displays, fostering a real sense of pride in their work.


Throughout all year groups, we offer a wide range of creative opportunities to develop artistic skills in drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, textiles and printing. We build on the artistic skills, experience and understanding which each child already possesses, ensuring a progression of key skills.


Most of our artwork is linked to cross curricular work which gives it a real purpose and also provides opportunities for studying historical, cultural and religious art. It is through these art activities that children develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. They also learn to use a range of materials and tools effectively and competently


We teach our children to appreciate the work of artists and craftspeople and to use them as valuable sources of inspiration for their own work. They are also encouraged to evaluate their own work and that of their peers
