Art Intent


  • To engage, inspire and challenge pupils to explore their creativity and record their artistic experiences

  • To develop the knowledge and skills to become more proficient at drawing, painting, sculpture and other art and design techniques.

  • Using the language of art and design, to analyse and evaluate their own work and that of others.

  • By studying a variety of artists and designers, to develop an understanding of how art and design reflect and shape our history, including our own Cornish history.
