Art & Design

Our Intent

In Barrow URC we believe that every child is an artist! Art plays an important part in the education of every child. It enables children to make discoveries about themselves and learn to appreciate others. Our pupils learn to value the discovery element of the creative process. They experiment with different media, techniques and approaches whilst learning about artists from different times, cultures and backgrounds, celebrating the richness of this diversity. Art is often linked to other subjects for a deeper cross-curricular learning experience. 

As they venture through school, our pupils have opportunities to build on their understanding and appreciation of art. Each child will learn to use different art techniques and develop an awareness of shape, colour, texture and pattern as well as understand the properties of materials. 

Art is celebrated in a number of attractive displays within school. While our pupils are given the opportunity to extend their art learning through visits by local artists along with extra-curricular experiences.
