Art & Design

Art and Design


There is a balance of 2D and 3D outcomes planned into the Art and Design curriculum for KS1 and KS2. Throughout each Key Stage, children learn about a range of artists, craftspeople and designers from different times and cultures. They explore a range of starting points for practical work, including themselves, their experiences, stories, natural and man made objects and the local environment. They also investigate different kinds of Art, craft and design either in the locality, in original and reproduction form. This includes visits to Art exhibitions where possible, and looking at Art in galleries on the Internet. Opportunities are keenly sought to work collaboratively with other local schools and with Artists. 

 

Art contributes explicitly to Children’s
Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural experience by:

 

· Giving pupils the chance to reflect on nature, their environment and surroundings.

· Providing opportunities to study artists with a spiritual or religious theme.

· Providing opportunities to study art, craft and design from their own and different cultures and at different times.

· Examining pieces of art based on ethical/moral concerns raised by artists i.e.: War/ racism

· Giving pupils the opportunity to reflect on thought provoking images.

· Giving children opportunities to work Co-operatively and collaboratively with others and to value the contributions made by each member of the team.

· Allowing children to evaluate their own and other’s artwork in a constructive manner.

· Studying art, craft and design from different cultures supported by visits from artists and participating in workshops.

PARENT ART WORKSHOP - STARRY NIGHT

We learnt about the style of LS Lowry who had painted Piccadilly Circus in when he visited London. 
The children painted famous landmarks using his style.  They used dull colours, then added matchstick people to their work. 

What London landmarks can you recognise?
