At Djanogly Northgate Academy, Art gives children the opportunity to explore the world around them, collaborate with others and express themselves. We believe it is a subject with endless possibilities where every individual can flourish and feel inspired as though they can achieve anything.
We aim to expose our children to a rich diet of art, artists and experiences that will allow them to develop respect and understanding for different cultures, broaden horizons and give them the cultural capital they need to be successful, educated citizens.
Children will build on basic skills and be encouraged to take creative risks. In art, we aim to engage children’s imagination, develop empathy and infuse the curriculum with our ‘5 Rs’ so that children leave Northgate as emotionally-intelligent, confident artists who can share their viewpoints and believe in themselves.
