Here at St Michael's we believe that high quality art engages, inspires and challenges pupils to experiment, invent and create. Through our art provision, children will increase their sense of achievement and self confidence to explore creatively in a visual way.
In both the Foundation stage and Key Stage 1, curriculum art is linked to topics and taught by the class teacher. At Key Stage 2, art is also linked to topics and is taught both in class as well as by Mrs Fraser.
We rotate our skills focus, ensuring that all elements of art are included and a progression of techniques developed. The skills of collage, drawing, painting, printing, textiles, 3D and use of ICT are all covered.
Our art curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:-
- produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording experiences
- develop control in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
- evaluate and analyse our own and others work
- explore great artists, craft makers and designers and understand their place in history and culture
