Art Design & Technology

Art Design & Technology

At Shiplake Primary, our intention is to provide an Art Curriculum which allows children to explore their imagination, generate ideas, acquire skills and knowledge, apply judgments and evaluate work completed.

We take inspiration from our class artist, learning more about them and their style, which we then apply to our own work. We plan and teach sequenced art lessons based on skills, using a range of media and give the children opportunities to apply the skills learned in other areas of the curriculum, making the lessons relevant and meaningful. We aim for our children to be able to develop ideas, master techniques and to take inspiration from the greats.

Throughout the curriculum, children will be given opportunities to develop knowledge and understanding of skills. To learn about materials and techniques used by artists. To learn about the world of art, craft and design. To recognise achievement of artists, designers and craftspeople, from many different times and cultures.

We plan to enhance our Art curriculum by providing our children with the opportunity to display their artwork in our school gallery, where we can admire the children’s work and see the progression across the year groups.

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.
