Intent for Art and Design
Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds, Healthy Futures.
In Art and Design pupils will be taught high quality lessons which will inspire them to think innovatively and develop creativity. Our Art curriculum provides children with opportunities to develop their skills using a range of media and materials. Children will be introduced to a range of works and develop knowledge of the styles and vocabulary used by famous artists.
It is important that art work be purposeful; be this as a means of expression or to explore the styles of other artists that inspire their own work. Pupils are clear what the intended outcomes are and have a means to measure their own work against this.
Implementation for Art and Design
We do the following in order to deliver our curriculum in Art and Design.
- Teachers are provided with a Long Term Plan for art, which carefully plans for progression and depth.
- Children learn the skills of drawing, painting, printing, collage and 3D work.They are given the opportunity to explore and evaluate different creative ideas and artists.
- Art is taught in half termly rotation with Design Technology.
- The skills the children acquire are applied to their cross-curricular topics, allowing children to use their art skills to reflect on and explore topics in greater depth.
- In Art, children are expected to be reflective and evaluate their work using key vocabulary, thinking about how they can make changes and keep improving. This should be meaningful and continuous throughout the process, with evidence of age-related verbal and written refection.
Impact for Art and Design
- An Art Curriculum of high quality, which is well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. If children are keeping up with the curriculum.
- In addition, we measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods: A reflection on standards achieved against the planned outcomes; Pupil discussions about their learning; which includes discussion of their knowledge, ideas, vocabulary and evaluations of work.
