Art and Design

Art at Sherwood stimulates creativity and imagination. We aim to provide a visual, tactile and sensory experience and a unique way of understanding and responding to the world.  Pupils use colour, form, texture, pattern and different materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think.  Through art activities, they learn to make informed judgements and aesthetic and practical decisions, becoming actively involved in shaping environments.  They explore ideas and meanings in the work of artists, craftspeople and designers.  They learn about the diverse roles and functions of art in both contemporary life and in different times and cultures. 

The arts are important in our everyday lives. Within this wider curriculum, understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts have the power to enrich our personal and public lives.  With this in mind, we endeavour to ensure that children develop a healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards the arts that will stay with them.
