At Morley Victoria Primary School we aim to offer an Art and Design curriculum which engages, challenges and inspires pupils whilst giving them the creative freedom to experiment with their own work and produce pieces they can be proud of.  Art and Design stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a unique way of understanding and responding to the world. Through art children learn to make informed valued judgements and practical decisions. Art and Design is taught by class teachers and specialist HLTAs at Morley Victoria.

The aims of our curriculum are to

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
  • evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural developments of their art forms

 Our top 5 books we would recommend:

  • Children's Book of Art DK
  • Children's Book of Art Usbourne
  • The Story of Paintings Mick Manning and Brita Granstorm
  • Art Through the Ages Frederic Furon
  • The Usbourne Complete Book of Art
