At Ellistown, our art curriculum will allow pupils to take part in high-quality, well-sequenced art lessons that initially focus on teaching children specific skills of art and design, before giving opportunity to apply these skills in the creation of a piece of art.
Our art and design curriculum strives to equip pupils with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Knowledge, skills and understanding are progressively built upon through each of the areas of experience of Drawing, Painting, Sculpture and Crafts. Within each discipline this is provided throughgradually extending the breadth of content, increasing the depth of knowledge and understanding and focusing on improving the quality of responses and outcomes.
Art at Ellistown aims to help pupils:
Long term plans ensure that that children are taught key skills in the main areas of art, they will then be given the opportunity to apply these new skills when creating a piece of art. Long term plans ensure that children experience key skills in the six main areas of art (Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Collage, Textiles, and 3D). Art teaching within our school embraces the use of a ‘creative, cross-curricular’ approach, and there are also opportunities to link art learning to learning in science, geography and history. Throughout each year children will be exposed to significant works of art, artists and crafts people from a range of backgrounds and cultures.
We want our pupils to embrace creativity and be allowed to explore their own imaginations. Our aim is to provide them with the tools, skills and confidence to be able to create.
