Art and Design

At West Rise, we grow artists who…


  • can use the skills they have learnt to create artwork
  • work confidently with artistic freedom to fulfil their visions
  • can develop their skills through practice and curiosity

We encourage all pupils to produce creative, imaginative work. Children explore and evaluate different creative ideas. 

They become proficient in a variety of techniques. These include drawing, painting and sculpting. They also practice other selected craft skills, like collage, printing, sewing and patterns.

Pupils expand their knowledge of famous artists, designers and craft makers.  

Children develop their emotional expression through art. This enhances their personal and social development.
