Art and Design at Holy Family - Intent
At Holy Family we strive for our children to learn in a fully positive, nurturing and celebratory environment. We aim for children to develop an appreciation of beautiful art and culture, and to be able to use it to express themselves both as an individual and alongside others.
We will ensure that children achieve the following aims from The National Curriculum, with opportunity to develop throughout KS1 and KS2:
- To use a range of materials creatively to design and make products
- To use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination
- To develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space.
- To be given opportunity to record and develop ideas in sketchbooks throughout their time in school.
- To learn about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.

The school vision for the teaching of Art and Design
Amazing Art Across Our School!
Reception class have not been at school all that long, but they have amazed us with their artistic capabilities!
"I love making pictures. I can use paint and feathers and lots and lots of colours!" Miley
Year 1 have enjoyed experimenting with paint this half term, exploring the work of artists such as Mondrian, Rothko and Klee and discussing how they have used colour in their work.
“We have been learning about primary and secondary colours in art. I love art because I can be creative and mix paints to make my colours.” Shane
Year 6 have been exploring 3D methods of making art. This half term, they have used clay to make their own Viking heads! As you can see, they look very impressive!
