Art and Design 

The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
  • evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms


At Ireland Wood, we believe that art stimulates creativity and imagination. It is a natural form of expression and a source of great pleasure. We encourage children to develop their creative and imaginative talents through learning skills and techniques, using a variety of materials and tools. Children actively explore a range of artists’ work.
