Art Our content, aims and concepts

Concept Tables_Art.png

Our aim is to provide an Art education which enables children to reach great heights in their creativity and skills whilst appreciating and understanding the creative world in which we live.

At Winsham we consider art and design to be a vital part of every child’s education and therefore has a significant and valuable role in our curriculum. We aim to facilitate meaningful, memorable learning experiences within our vibrant, varied curriculum. Teaching art and design through engaging enquiry questions allows for Art outcomes that children can not only explain the elements needed for creation, but also the intent and purpose of each step of the journey. Through effective teaching and a clear progression of learning, children will develop their understanding of the visual language of art, allowing the children to flourish whilst producing creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences in their learning journals.  These journals are a personal space to try out ideas & techniques and to describe and annotate their thoughts, ideas, learning, discoveries, opinions, strengths and areas for development.

A clear understanding of the visual elements of art and design (line, tone, texture, colour, pattern, shape and 3D form) will be firmly rooted within a clear progression of knowledge throughout the following strands: drawing, painting, sculpture, printing and textiles. Children will always be encouraged to: think critically, develop their understanding of art & design and learn about great artists (craft, design, architecture, textiles, sculptors etc) from a variety of backgrounds and cultures (past and present) and understand the historical and cultural links.
