Art Curriculum Overview:
All of our pupils will be competent in drawing. They will have skills across a range of media and have an in-depth knowledge about our chosen artists.
Our Art curriculum was created by the Art leader at Meadowdale. This approach was taken so that we had a broad and diverse curriculum that focuses on society, culture, identity, communication and the environment via observation, analysis, imagination, memory and self-expression.
In Foundation Stage children have continual access to a range of art materials to access freely during continuous provision. They also have discrete teaching sessions as whole class/group sessions where they explore drawing, painting and collage. These skills are then built on as children move into Key Stage 1 and 2.
In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 all pupils will have had coverage over these different medias:
- 3D Collage
As well as the 7 formal elements:
All children will also complete an in-depth study about a chosen artist from Foundation Stage to Year 6, so they leave Meadowdale knowing 7 artists. These artists range in gender, ethnicity, age, media and geographical location so that pupils gain diverse knowledge.
