Art and Design Subject Leader: Miss Wood

As parents cherish their child’s first mark making attempts, at Kaye’s we value all children’s expression through art. In the words of Picasso, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” At Kaye’s, we try our upmost to instil pride and confidence in our young artists and for them to carry this with them through their education and beyond. Our Art curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skills to be able to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. As pupils progress, they should gain a deeper understanding of how Art and Design reflects and shapes our history, and how it contributes to the culture, creativity and wealth of our world.
