Art and Design


Expressive arts and design is used to develop a child's imagination, creativity and their ability to use media and materials. Children do this in range of ways including singing songs and making music, dancing, playing with colours, textures and design. All these approaches to expressive arts help children to represent and understand their own feelings and ideas.



At Little Hill, we have 4 core strands that run through our Art and Design curriculum. Each strand has a progression in knowledge and skills, detailed in this document, that link the topic areas together.

  • Drawing - Line, Pattern and Texture
  • Painting, Printer and Colour
  • Collage, Sculpture and 3-D Art
  • Responding to Artwork and using a Sketchbook
