Art

 

Children across the school, from reception to year 6, have the incredible opportunity to develop their skills as budding artists. Each art lesson the children focus on particular skills within a discipline and are able to excersize their creativity within theses skill. Throughout the year the pupils explore a wide range of areas within the subject of art including painting, drawing, collage, printing, sculpture and textiles.

Children are encourage to explore and experiment with a range of tools and materials and discover what they can do as an artist. From Reception pupils start to learn basic skills in areas across the art curriculum which are then developed throughout Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

An introduction to classic artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Monet and Van Gogh is an important part of the curriculum and gives pupils the chance to form opinions and engage in discussions based on artists work as well as take inspiration for their own artwork.

The Art Room is an exciting and engaging place for children to learn, be creative, develop their skills and talents and be inspired.

Van Gogh’s Starry Night

The children step inside a piece of artwork every time they enter the art room.

The windows are inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night. It’s as though our playground has a Starry Night hovering over it!

In Year 6 we have been learning about proportion! Did you know that we can use the head as a guideline to help us draw the rest of the body in proportion?

We know how to create secondary and tertiary colours by using the primary colours. Year 6 create their own colour wheels. Did you know that red, blue and yellow can’t be made by using any other colours?

In Year 2 we learned how to apply Paper Mache! We enjoyed getting glue all over our hands to create our smooth structures. We can’t wait to turn these into planets!

Can you guess what I am making? I am applying Mod roc in thin strips to create my structure! Have you ever used Mod Roc before? Year 4 enjoyed using Mod Roc to create Viking Helmets!

Art wouldn’t be art without a little mess!

We have been learning to manipulate clay in Year 3! We know how to create different types of pots by using our hands. Do you like my coil pot?

 

 

We have been improving our scissor skills in Year 2! We know the importance of cutting along a line to create accurate shapes. Do you like my space rocket?

Year 5 have turned into Ancient Egyptians! These pieces took us 3 weeks of hard work. First we created self-portraits. Then we learned how to make our own skin tones. Finally we used a variety of materials to create our Egyptian masks.

 

In Year 1 we have learned how to make colours lighter and darker! We add white to create a tint and black to create a shade. Have you tried making colours lighter and darker?

In Year 6 we have been learning to create depth! We know how to create different tints, tones and shades. Our bottle paintings looked like they were 3D!

I know to smudge chalk! Year 2 enjoyed creating their own space scenes. They liked how their hands turned into different colours as they smudged the chalk. We had a class of colourful aliens by the end!
