Art and Design Curriculum
As the national curriculum states, 'Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity.' St Mary's aim to embody this ethos in our curriculum offer, where pupils are provided with opportunities to access a range of appropriate resources and materials. Each child is encouraged to explore their creative talents, which establish the foundations for creative thinking.
Our geographical location allows us to harness the unique culture of Broadway's rich arts history, which provides frequent community events.
The attached link provides information about the upcoming Broadway Arts Festival workshop, which is themed, 'This is me!'.
‘This is Me’ project includes:
- performance poetry workshops with Joshua Seigal
- interactive arts appreciation with Magic Lantern visiting local galleries to learn about and appreciate different types of art
- choral singing workshops with renowned choir master Stuart Overington
- a public sharing of their experiences and artistic talents with family & friends in the marquee on the village green after school on Friday 12th June (during the festival)
In addition, with the help of two local visual artists Ali Rice and Jen Beetson, the children will be transforming both the indoor and outdoor spaces at Broadway’s United Reformed Church into their own unique pop-up art gallery that will be opened as a free exhibition during the festival in June (5-14)
At the request of the schools, all activities are designed to boost positive self-esteem, celebrate individual identity and leave a legacy of community and collaboration, planting the seeds for a youth arts hub in Broadway village.
