At Broomwood Primary School, we aim to create a broad and inspiring curriculum that encourages all children to find their passion and personality through the medium of art.
The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
- Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
- Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
- Know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
- At our school Art has a clear process beginning with experiencing, exploring and analysing the Art of a famous artist or style. From this they develop the relevant skills to this style, using appropriate media. Pupils progress to using these new skills to inspire their own piece. Finally they evaluate their work and use this to create their final piece. Children are encouraged to work creatively, allowing them to show their personality through their artwork.
- Art is taught through a range of media across the school ensuring children have the opportunity to experience a broad range of styles. Teaching in this thematic manner helps children to make cross curricular connections and develop understanding of Art they will see around them in the broader world.
- Children are taught using a knowledge led approach ensuring children have the opportunities to develop Art specific vocabulary and become articulate learners
- Art is taught in a progressive way, building on skills developed in EYFS and KS1 to enable the children to become proficient artists and apply and refine their skills to new challenged across KS2.
- Clubs offer children further opportunities to develop their love of Art and build on the skills they have developed in class.
