The essence of Art and Design at AIS and AJS
At AIS/AJS we teach art by meeting the requirements of the national curriculum. We aim to engage and inspire pupils to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. They should know how art and design have shaped our history and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
We aim to achieve this by teaching knowledge and skills through high quality sequences of lessons, which are designed to help pupils develop their understanding of:
-some of the world’s great artists.
-vocabulary linked to the area of work.
-a range of techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture.
-applying these techniques to produce their own creative works.
-evaluating and thinking critically of their own and others work.
Teaching is designed to take account of our 5 key curriculum drivers with skills and knowledge taken from our progression document to ensure age appropriate content. Where appropriate, links are also made to ensure that a child’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is enhanced through art.
By the end of KS1- colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form, space, primary, secondary, shade, sculpture, pastel, charcoal, clay.
