At Panshanger we follow the National Curriculum for Art and Design. It is our aim that children:
- 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
Across each key stage children learn to use different art making techniques including printmaking, drawing, painting and 3D work using materials such as clay, paper, card, Modroc and Papier–mâché. The children are introduced to the work of different artists from a range of cultures, times and disciplines. This gives children a broad experience of what art can be and inspires their own creative work.
Art skills are taught discretely through art lessons and there are many opportunities for children to use the skills creatively and expressively across the whole of the Primary curriculum.
For further details about what is taught in each year group please see the newsletters on the class pages.
