Art and Design

Our vision and ambition for Art and Design at Hemingford Grey Primary School 


We want children to have: 

  • The ability to use visual language skillfully and convincingly (for example, line, shape, pattern, colour, texture, form) to express emotions, interpret observations, convey insights and accentuate their individuality. 

  • The ability to communicate fluently in visual and tactile form. 

  • The ability to draw confidently and adventurously from observation, memory and imagination. 

  • The ability to explore and invent marks, develop and deconstruct ideas and communicate perceptively and powerfully through purposeful drawing in 2D, 3D or digital media. 

  • An impressive knowledge and understanding of other artists, craftmakers and designers. 

  • The ability to think and act like creative practitioners by using their knowledge and understanding to inform, inspire and interpret ideas, observations and feelings. 

  • Independence, initiative and originality which they can use to develop their creativity. 

  • The ability to select and use materials, processes and techniques skillfully and inventively to realise intentions and capitalise on the unexpected. 

  • The ability to reflect on, analyse and critically evaluate their own work and that of others.
