Art and Design

Art Statement of Intent

At Blackwater, art is an integral part of school life. We believe that art is at the centre of developing innovation, creativity, critical thinking as well as being a vehicle for self discovery and expression.  After all humans have been drawing for over thirty thousand years!  We endeavour to deliver a high quality art and design curriculum encouraging and inspiring our children create, innovate and embark on a journey of discovery of themselves and the wider world.  Our art and design curriculum engages children in a progressive programme of ‘learning to do’ and ‘learning about.’
