At Hatch Warren Infant School our art curriculum will engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As the children progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They will know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. We aim for all pupils: to produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences, becoming confident in drawing, painting, sculpture and other arts. We will give them the experiences and knowledge to be able to evaluate and analyse creative works using appropriate language. We will give them exposure to great artists, craft makers and designers, so they understand the historical and cultural development of different art forms.
Our children will be taught to use a range of materials creatively using drawing, painting, printing and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination. We will help them to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. Throughout our curriculum they will learn about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers. We will model to the children how to describe the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, then giving them time to reflect on art work and make links to their own work.
Our children will have learnt key skills, experimented with materials so that each child can then explore their own creativity. By creating a safe and nurturing environment, children will be encouraged to take creative risks and to learn from the journey, rather than head towards a pre-defined end result.
