Welcome to the art curriculum page.
You will find past projects that the children have taken part in over the year and our latest news.
During the Spring term, we have set up a Brilliant Makers lunchtime club with Mrs Komodromos and Miss Campbell.
In this club we work towards developing the children's individual art skills and nurturing their creativity through one to one support.
Currently we are working towards an art project with Linton Library to display some of our children's fantastic artwork in the children's area of the library. Watch this space!
At the start of the academic year we enjoy a whole school project. This year we have worked as a whole school towards developing our textile skills. We used sewing, embroidery, felt making and printing skills to create beautiful and creative banners that highlighted our school values. They look amazing!
After school art club
Art club is a fun opportunity for pupils to enhance their drawing techniques, learn and develop new skills and use lots of different media to produce creative pieces of art work which are often on show in our school.
Purpose of study
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge 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.
The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all 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.
