Art and Design

Art and Design contributes to the development of the whole child emotionally, aesthetically, physically, socially and cognitively. It provides all children with the opportunity to express themselves imaginatively, creatively and develop their understanding of, and respond to the world around them. Pupils are exposed to many visual, tactile and sensory experiences. Sennen School enables pupils to become involved in, enjoy and appreciate the visual arts to see how it can enrich their personal lives. They learn the part that art and design plays in their own and others’ lives, in contemporary life and in different times and cultures.

Our art curriculum aims to ensure pupils develop:
  • Appreciation of work by different artists;
  • The skills to create their own artwork inspired by existing artwork and artists;
  • Skills of art in different media;
  • Their own creativity and enjoyment.
