The aim of our school is to provide an art curriculum that enables each child to reach their full potential in learning art. They do this through investigating and making, researching and developing skills, and through their evaluation of their own art and that made by others.
We plan a range of art activities which provide the opportunities required by the National Curriculum for Art, for pupils to:
- record responses to experience and imagination and to observations of the natural and made environment
- gather resources and materials, using them to stimulate and to develop ideas
- explore and use two and three-dimensional media, working on a variety of scales
- review and modify their work as it progresses
- develop an understanding of the work of artists, craftspeople and designers from a range of times and cultures and apply it to their work
- respond to and evaluate art, craft and design, including their own and the work of others
Children at Lyndhurst understand and make use of the eight art elements outlined in the National Curriculum: line and shape; colour and tone; pattern and texture; form and space.
