At Wynndale Primary, we place a great emphasis on the importance of Art. It enables all children to express themselves in a creative, imaginative manner and through exploration. We intend to teach the children a skills-based curriculum, with individuality and creativeness flowing through everything they do.
Our aim is to:
- Explore the works of different artists and understand historical and cultural development of these art forms.
- Inspire by becoming proficient in drawing, painting, sculpting and other art forms, developing their art skills.
- Spark by producing creative work of their own ideas, to be artists.
- Deepen by analysing and evaluating creative works.
Our Art curriculum provides children with exciting and engaging opportunities to develop their skills using a range of media and materials, becoming artists themselves. Children learn the skills of drawing, painting, printing, collage, textiles, 3D work and digital art and are given the opportunity to explore and evaluate different creative ideas. Children will be introduced to a range of relevant works and develop knowledge of the styles and vocabulary used by famous artists. The skills they acquire are applied to their cross-curricular themes, allowing children to use their art skills to reflect on and explore themes in greater depth. In Art, children are expected to be reflective and evaluate their work, thinking about how they can make changes and keep improving. This will be a meaningful, continuous and progressive process.
