Art and Design

At Thornton Hough every child is given the opportunity to express themselves through the arts.  Our aim is to create a learning environment that stimulates creativity, experimentation, invention and perseverance.  

In Art and Design we encourage:

  • Pupils to use colour, form, texture, pattern, and different materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel, and think.
  • Pupils to identify different kinds of art through the work of artists, craftspeople, and designers in both contemporary life and in different times and cultures.

In Design & Technology we encourage:

  • Pupils to research, design, make, evaluate and use their technical artistic knowledge. 
  • Pupils to combine elements of art and craft, science and technology to challenge them to find a solution to problems.
