St. Ignatius (BKCAT) Art & Design Plan

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.


We aim for our art curriculum to engage, inspire and challenge our pupils. Through high quality art and design lessons, our pupils will learn the specific knowledge and skills in order for them to experiment, invent and create their own works of art and designs. We want our pupils to find enjoyment in art and creativity, as well as develop an appreciation for the work of a range of artists. We want pupils to confidently and skillfully use a range of techniques and materials. We want pupils to have opportunities to develop their observation and description skills.

We intend to do this by:

  • Ensuring we provide a high quality art curriculum that is engaging, inspiring and challenging
  • Providing pupils with rich opportunities that enable them to produce their own works of art and explore ideas
  • Teaching pupils to practise and master a range of art techniques and skills


If you have any artistic skills which you would like to share with the children, please contact the school office.
