Art

TARGET: To ensure that the breadth of the study and knowledge, skills and understanding objectives are being covered through the school. 

 

To encourage and support that art is used in other subject areas where appropriate and supportive to the curriculum. 

 

Overall Objectives:

1. Each year group team to be aware of the breadth of study and knowledge and understanding that applies to their year group for art teaching.

2. Art has many cross curricular links as possible throughout the school. 

EYFS– Expressive arts and design

In FS1 we are learning to: Explore different materials freely, in order to develop their ideas about how to use them and what to make. • Develop their own ideas and then decide which materials to use to express them. • Join different materials and explore different textures. • Create closed shapes with continuous lines, and begin to use these shapes to represent objects. • Draw with increasing complexity and detail, such as representing a face with a circle and including details. • Use drawing to represent ideas like movement or loud noises. • Show different emotions in their drawings and paintings, like happiness, sadness, fear, etc. • Explore colour and colour mixing. Also, physical development plays a huge part in being artist. Children learn to use large-muscle movements to wave flags and streamers, paint and make marks. • Choose the right resources to carry out their own plan. • Use one-handed tools and equipment, for example, making snips in paper with scissors. • Use a comfortable grip with good control when holding pens and pencils.

In FS2 we are learning to build onFS1 and explore, use and refine a variety of artistic effects to express their ideas and feelings. • Return to and build on their previous learning, refining ideas and developing their ability to represent them. • Create collaboratively, sharing ideas, resources and skills. Also, physical development plays a huge part in being artist. Children learn to develop their small motor skills so that they can use a range of tools competently, safely and confidently. • Use their core muscle strength to achieve a good posture when sitting at a table or sitting on the floor. • Develop overall body-strength, balance, coordination and agility.

 

Key stage 1 Pupils should be taught:

§ to use a range of materials creatively to design and make products

§ to use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination

§ to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space

§ about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.

Key stage 2 Pupils should be taught to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.

Pupils should be taught:

§ to create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas § to improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay]

§ about great artists, architects and designers in history.

A detailed whole school overview will be added as soon as possible.
