Art & Design
St Nicolas Art Intent
At St Nicolas Academy, we place a great emphasis on the importance of creativity. Art is a stimulus by which children can express their imaginative element and experience several forms of creativity including art and design, dance, drama and music.
Its incorporation into other subjects serves as an effective vehicle for the achievement of cross curricular objectives. Our whole school outlook upon the arts (art and design, dance, drama and music) ensures that all children enjoy, participate and develop their skills during all activities.
Art across the curriculum serves as an invaluable tool for all children to demonstrate their strengths and vision. It enables children to express themselves in a creative, imaginative manner and through exploration.
We intend to teach the children a skills based curriculum, with individuality and creativeness flowing through everything they do.
