Our Art and Design curriculum at Dyrbrook Primary school aims to provide opportunities to its students with a breadth of creative practices. Through a structured, skills driven learning journey, students build knowledge that enables them to become independent, self-aware, critical thinkers. Students build their technical skills and gain more confidence and control when working with media through teacher-led direct instruction and modelling. This is balanced with opportunities for open interpretation, encouraging all students to think and act like artists.
We aim for all students to develop a lifelong appreciation for arts and culture as well as being a platform for them to express thoughts and feelings, on a personal level and about the world around us. In a constantly evolving subject, we draw upon both local, regional and global artists and other sources for inspiration that spans from ancient times to the present day.
