Art and Design

A Mead artist has the confidence and skills to be creative and reflective in a judgment free environment. We believe that teaching and learning in art and design is important because it stimulates creativity, imagination and inventiveness. It fires the children’s imagination and is a fundamental means of personal expression.


At Mead we are guided by the National Curriculum for Art and Design and the Suffolk Scheme of Work. Children are introduced to a range of works and develop knowledge of the styles and vocabulary used by famous artists It enables the children to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes.


Art and Design curriculum provides children with opportunities to develop their skills using a range of media and materials. This year the children are learning the skills of :


Purpose/Visual Literacy/Articulation


Children will use their skills to express themselves creatively. This includes using natural materials to produce collaborative artwork.
