Vision for Art
At All Saints Primary School art is an essential part of the primary curriculum. We believe that art stimulates creativity, imagination and inventiveness. We aim to give children a wide variety of high quality art experiences, through drawing, painting, printing, college and sculpture that engage and challenge our pupils.
Our new scheme of work, developed from the National Curriculum and Cornerstones includes aspects of appreciation, art history and experimentation. We have also invested in lots of new art equipment to enable children to explore different techniques.
Whole School Art Projects-
We will use our new special whole school art curriculum days to bring in a love of art and create whole school displays. During these days we will be inviting specialist artists into school to work with children, to inspire them and challenge their thinking and creativity.
Displays of Art around the School-
Around the school more art will be displayed, showcasing children's talents. A whole school art gallery will be created where every child's piece of art work will be displayed. New art clubs with KS1 and KS2 children will create whole school art pieces half termly to display around school.
Teaching of Art-
A new scheme of work has been developed to teach art across the year strategically, so every child will experience a variety of art equipment and techniques. As the children progress through school, art experiences are built upon so the children can make decisions about their approach to different challenges.We will also make sure art is not taught just in art designated lessons, but wherever appropriate it is linked to the wider curriculum as it gives children the opportunities to bring a topic to life.
