EYFS Our Art & Design Curriculum


During the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), children will be given the opportunity to explore colour, texture, shape and form in two and three dimensions. The children will have access to a wide range of constructions, collage, painting and drawing activities, using appropriate tools and art materials. 

The Early Years outcomes for Art and Design are taken from the following area of learning:


Expressive Arts and Design


During the Early Years Foudation Stage children will learn to:


  • safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function.

  • use what they have learnt about media and materials in original ways, thinking about uses and purposes.

  • represent their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through design and technology, art, music, dance, role play and stories.


This term EYFS will explore the artist Jackson Pollock.
