‘We Care, We Share, We Value’

Art & Design

What makes a good Art and Design pupil at Holy Cross?

A passion for trying new techniques with a willingness to make mistakes in order to improve.  An ability to investigate and learn from artists in order to replicate and then use techniques and ideas.  An ability to reflect honestly and accurately on own work.


Our Vision for Art and Design

All children will be taught to develop their techniques, including control and use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increased awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design. That they will use a wide range of materials creatively to design and make a multitude of products and use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination.

Children will develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space and also learn about at range of great artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and make links to their own work.

We strive to teach art and design that will excite, enthuse and grow our children creatively with passion.
