Art and Design

We are currently in the process of reviewing our curriculum and as such, you will notice the curriculum pages changing over the coming weeks and months. Given its high importance and significant impact on teaching and learning, this is not a task we want to rush so please be patient with us while we make these changes and update the website as new information becomes available.



At Carclaze we aim to ensure that our Art and design curriculum engages, inspires and challenges pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. It is our belief that all children should have access to an art and design curriculum which fosters a lifelong love and appreciation this subject. We strive to present children with a diverse range of experiences so that they can experience art and design from different cultures and periods and understand how art can reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. 


At Carclaze, we aim to do this through the explicit teaching of the curriculum aims which are:

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