During Art lessons pupils are encouraged to enquire, organise, express opinions and feelings, develop a range of practical skills, explore and experiment with different media, research and understand the role of Art and artists in society. Sketch-books are used from Year 3 onwards to record and to encourage progression.
A dedicated Art and DT room is provided for pupils to work in an enhanced environment, where a wide range of resources are available.
Pupils will 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 use sketchbooks to collect, record and evaluate ideas.
- to improve techniques such as drawing, painting and sculpture using a range of materials.
- to learn about great artists, architects and designers.
