Art

I am an artist. I can draw and paint with confidence, using different techniques. I believe in my own ability to produce amazing art work and

am strong enough to allow others to critique it. I can communicate and express myself through art and I understand how other cultures do

too. Art flows through my veins.

 

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is deciding which to keep.”

Miss Hurst and Miss Nicol are our Art Champions

Art forms an important part of our curriculum. It stimulates creativity and imagination whilst giving us unique opportunities to develop intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially. Therefore, we believe that it should be taught as an discrete subject as well as incorporated into other curriculum lessons.

 

In Key Stage 1 we experiment with a range of different materials creatively to design and make products. We draw, paint, print and sculpt materials such as clay, to develop techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. We use technology to produce images and explore the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers.

 

In Key Stage 2 we build upon our skills by learning specific drawing, painting, printing and sculpture techniques. We continue to get messy and explore a wider range of materials, forming our own preferences and style. Technology is used to produce images, patterns and decorative pieces of work. We become more confident when recording our observations and ideas and we use them to review and evaluate improvements. We continue to explore the work of great artists, architects and designers in history.

In Key Stage 1 in the Autumn term...

We used the book ‘The Dot’ as inspiration for our art work. We looked at mark making, colour mixing and studied the work of the artist Kandinsky.
We then linked our art to the book ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’
