Art Vision Statement

At Packmoor Ormiston Academy, we believe that our art curriculum should be free of failure and should foster the conditions for creativity, imagination and personal experience. We want our pupils to experience a curriculum which not only stimulates creativity and imagination, but allows pupils to respond to the world around them in their own unique way. We believe that it is important for children to learn about the diverse roles and functions of art and crafts in contemporary life, and in different times and cultures.
