Why do we teach Art? (Intention)

At Wildground federation, we value Art and Design as an important part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum.  Art and Design provide children with the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and emotions through creative media. We give children the opportunity to learn about others artists and crafts people. As well as learning about how to use a range of media and resources so that they can apply their knowledge to be creative in their own way.

 

How do we teach Art? (Implementation)

At Wildground Federation Art and Design is taught through continuous and enhanced provision in the EYFS. In key stage 1 and key stage 2 children are taught specific skills such as, how to use different media, the key elements of art and design, how to manipulate materials and how to evaluate their own learning. Every lesson is individually planned so it can be taught effectively and all children’s needs are met. We provide opportunities for children to make links between art and design and other areas of the curriculum and where possible children are given the opportunity to make something creative as an outcome for a series of lessons (i.e. cross-curricular links). Once children have been taught a specific skill, they are encouraged to develop their own creative response making their own individual art work, being an artist.
