King’s Somborne C of E Art and Design & Technology Intent


Our intention is to ensure we fulfil our children’s entitlement to a rich and explorative creative curriculum. Our young artists and designers will enjoy developing their skills in painting, printing, drawing, sculpture and textiles, design and construction.


We are inspired not only by famous artists and movements, but also our picturesque surrounding environment. We will also provide opportunities for our children to learn about local artists and gain invaluable insight from our artist visits.


Our aim is to inspire interest and curiosity about  Art and Design through a series of lessons offering clear skills and knowledge progression. Our children will explore techniques, different equipment, mechanisms and models. They will design, make and evaluate pieces and gain a technical understanding of the processes. By offering opportunities to explore a breadth of media, children are exposed to endless combinations to express their creative selves.


Our curriculum inspires curiosity, enables our children to aspire for more, and supports them in becoming resilient learners.
