Lead Teacher – Mrs Terris
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
At Hertford St Andrew the children have been busy all year creating various different works of art. They have made Mayan masks, Brazilian Carnival headdresses, perspective sketching, charcoal drawings, self-portraits inspired by Guiseppe Arainboldo, Roman mosaics, rainforest prints inspired by Rousseau, torn paper collages, dinosaur footprint paintings, mini-beast spiders and dividing work using inspiration from Mondrian.
