Art and Design
“If you hear a voice within you saying, ‘You are not a painter,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” ~ Vincent van Gogh
At Compass Primary, we aim to provide a high-quality art and design education that aims to 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 which can be displayed in our school community and the local community. As pupils progress, we want them to think critically, be creative and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. We want children to know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
