We are Amazing Artists!
“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working” Pablo Picasso
At Wood End Park Academy, we use Art to allow students to nurture both their creativity, imagination and artistic knowledge, as well as develop their motor skills. Our Art curriculum has the aim of ensuring pupils use a wide range of mediums; children are encouraged to experiment with colour, tones, shades, and texture. Our students will build upon foundational practices, with the curriculum structured to allow for cross curricular links to be made. Throughout the year, children will be exposed to an array of artists, spanning several historical periods, and embracing many different cultures to understand the diversity in Art. Over the course of the years, our students will develop all aspects of their artistic abilities, through a series of targeted learning questions (lessons), which culminate in the production of their ‘masterpiece’ work. They are then expected to critique and self-reflect on their artwork and others, an important skill to develop as they transition into Key Stage 3.
