ART Curriculum ""THE ARTIST SEES WHAT OTHERS ONLY CATCH A GLIMPSE OF"

Lead: Miss M Barrett

ART INTENT

Art is a highly creative subject. We want to engage, inspire and challenge all pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

We aim to deliver the National Curriculum aims for art and design aims to ensure that all our pupils:

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
  • evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

ART IMPLEMENTATION

We plan for Art using the National Curriculum objectives to ensure a robust and thorough approach. Since Art utilises many complex skills we use a skills document to ensure progression through each knowledge block. We also allocate an artist study to each year group to help develop pupils understanding of the history of fine art. We hold regular end of term exhibitions to give pupils an audience and champion 'beautiful work' exhibitions in school.
