Art

artArt is a creative skill that children instinctively use as a means of expression and to communicate ideas and feelings. The teaching of art stimulates and encourages creativity and imagination through visual, tactile and sensory experiences. It provides a unique way of understanding and responding to the world and can be used to shape the environment. Teaching the children a variety of art skills underpins our art lessons. They experience different painting techniques from colour mixing to creating tone and shade as well as embedding key pencil skills such as crosshatching and perspective. Each year group focuses on different key artists which link to the children’s art topics.

Aims:

  • To stimulate each child’s creativity and imagination;
  • To develop each child’s understanding of colour, form, texture and pattern;
  • To develop each child’s ability to use materials and processes to communicate ideas and feelings;
  • To enable each child to record from firsthand experience and from imagination;
  • To explore with each child the ideas and meanings in the work of artists, craftspeople and designers;
  • To help each child to learn about the functions of art, craft and design in their own lives and in different times and cultures;
  • To help each child to learn how to make thoughtful judgements and aesthetic and practical decisions;
  • To help each child to become actively involved in shaping environments;
  • To extend and enrich other curriculum areas through art and design.
