Intent

The intent of the Art Curriculum at St Bridget's is to provide plenty of opportunities for the children to learn, apply and strengthen the key elements of: line, tone, texture, colour, pattern, shape

within the following skills:

  • Painting
  • Drawing
  • Collage
  • Textiles
  • Printing 
  • 3D

It is also the intent of the Art Curriculum to provide the children with knowledge of different artists which they can draw inspiration and technique from as well as enjoy the cultured world of art by visiting art galleries and working with artists in school.

In addition, the school aims to develop the children’s use and understanding of technical vocabulary associated with this subject. This is so that the children can articulate the skills / techniques that they have applied, the equipment that they have used and an explanation what their art work represents.

Implementation

St Bridget's follows a Long Term Plan which clearly demonstartes a progression of skills each year. From Year 1 upwards, all year groups will build on prior knowledge and skills to ensure progession is evident. Please refer to the 'Art Knowldge Organisers' to review the progression of skills. 

Impact

The intended impact of the Art Curriculum is that the majority of children in each year group has made progress.

In addition, it is the intended impact that the children:

  • are inspired by the Art Curriculum and want to learn more
  • show the progression in their skills, knowledge and understanding in the work in their books.
  • can discuss their learning and remember what they have learnt.
  • can identify some key artists and talk about their work.
