Art and Design

At Markington Church of England Primary & Nursery School we value the opportunities that Art and Design offers in stimulating our creativity and imagination, and how this tactile, sensory experience enables us to understand and respond to the world and improve our well-being.  We engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art and our curriculum enables children of all abilities to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes.

We provide opportunities for children to experience art activities they would not meet elsewhere, and so offer an introduction to a wide diversity of enriching, inspirational and aspirational opportunities for pupil’s future, igniting and developing their curiosity and creativity.  We introduce children to artists, craftspeople, architects and designers, encouraging children to think critically and develop a thorough understanding of art and its place in the world, including how it reflects our history and contributes to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
