At Ashby Fields, children learn about the great artists, craft makers and designers in our world. They learn and understand the historical and cultural development of how art and design have shaped our history, culture and wealth of our nation. We nurture their creativity and support them to develop their artistry, to be able to think critically and acquire a more rigorous understanding of art and design.

Through our curriculum, we provide children with high quality opportunities to embrace their creativity through art, craft and design.  We engage and inspire our children, whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent, create and express their own individual ideas, thoughts and feelings, through their works of art. We ensure that all pupils have access to a wealth of experiences to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.
