Art and Design Curriculum
Intent: What we want to achieve through teaching Art and Design
At Laceyfields Academy, our intent when teaching Art and Design is to enable children to be exposed to a wide range of 2D and 3D work inspired by artists and crafts people both locally and more well-known. We want to equip our children with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own pieces of art. Understanding of the visual elements of the work such as drawing, painting and modelling will be developed.
Implementation – How we do it here
At Laceyfields, Art and Design is taught by studying a range of artists and craftspeople so that the children have models to work from. They are encouraged to give opinions on the work of others so that they can develop their own ideas. Children use a range of media including pencils, paints, pastels and clay to create their designs. In EYFS, children create artwork related to their interests through continuous provision and through the theme of the term. In Key Stage1, the artwork is related to other subjects, for example the key text in English, or it may link to the main foundation subject of the term. Children follow a design process from planning and making to evaluation so they understand that there is a framework behind the creativity.
Impact: How we will see effective Art and Design teaching
Our children will be ready for the next stage in their education knowing a range of artists and their work. They will have developed a range of skills in drawing, painting and sculpting. They will show creativity and style inspired by the work of others and their own ideas.
