At Wethersfield, art is taught through a topic based approach, using skills to help the children develop their art skills, which has been taken from the National Curriculum. This is to ensure that the children continue to progress as the move across the school into a different Key Stage.
We encourage children to find enjoyment in creative art and to see themselves as artists. We ensure in every Key Stage, that the children get to explore various artists and learn about them and the skills they needed to become artists. E.g. in Year 1 the children have learnt about Monet and Van Gogh, in lower KS2 Andy Goldsworthy and in upper KS2 William Morris, as well as many others.
All children are given an opportunity to acquire skills in six major areas, drawing, painting, printing, textiles, modelling, construction and visual appreciation and are then encouraged to communicate their ideas through the use of colour, shape, texture, form, pattern and materials. The study of a wide range of artists, craftspeople and designers complements this work.
