Art and Design
Art at Romsey Abbey Primary School
How we teach art:
During art children will learn how to draw, paint, sculpt and explore other art, craft and design techniques. Another important aspect of the art and design curriculum is learning about how art has shaped our history and how it reflects it. In our Year R class children are given opportunities to be imaginative, explore different materials and develop their ideas linked to their own interests. Within Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils are given opportunities to use a range of materials creatively to design and make products through drawing, painting and sculpture. They explore different techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. We also learn about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.
What you will see in classrooms:
Children creating sketch books to record their learning and to use them to review and revisit ideas.
Some art work will be linked to projects.
Some art work will involve the teaching of key skills and may be linked to the English text driver
