Art & Design

Vision

  • To inspire children by providing a visually rich and stimulating, enabling environment
  • To teach art skills enabling all children to have a positive experience and to achieve
  • Children will be independent, expressing their own ideas with confidence
  • Children will acquire knowledge about art and culture and how these have changed over time
  • Children will be able to access high quality resources including technology
  • Children will aspire to be the fine artists, graphic designers, set designers, film makers, photographers, and fashion designers of the future

 

Children will:

  • Develop skills in a broad range of disciplines including drawing, painting, printmaking and textiles, sculpture, ceramics, and digital media
  • Use sketchbooks, journals and technology for independent research / formation of ideas
  • Use their knowledge and skills to select their own medium and materials to work with according to their intentions and plans
  • Constantly seek to improve their work by editing/ evaluating and starting again as necessary
  • Gain knowledge and understanding of significant movements in art history from stone age to present day and the associated artists

 Our Art and Design lead is Mrs Paulette West 

Art Policy 

Art Curriculum Map

Art Curriculum 

At Rushall we have high expectations of our children and take care that they are not over supported when they are taught art.  The following things are fundamental to our teaching of art:

  • The process is as important as the outcome
  • Children need time and space to experiment and explore
  • Art work needs to have a meaningful purpose for the children
  • The children’s ideas should be nurtured and developed
  • An individual response is always encouraged

 

Children will:

  • apply skills learned in a broad range of disciplines including drawing, painting, printmaking and textiles, sculpture, ceramics, and digital media to achieve desired effect
  • use sketchbooks, journals and technology for independent research / formation of ideas, making notes and sketches, taking photographs to use in their work
  • use their knowledge and skills to select which medium and materials to work with according to their intentions and plans
  • seek to improve their work by editing/evaluating starting again as necessary
  • have a sound knowledge and understanding of significant movements in art history from stone age to present day and the associated artists

Art History

In Key Stage 1 children will learn about significant artists and links will be made where possible to their practical work. In Key Stage 2 this knowledge will be built on as children begin our art history curriculum, learning about significant movements in art in chronological order from the stone age to present day contemporary art.
