Intent, Implementation and Impact
Children have endless possibilities to develop and enjoy their creativity through Art. At Micklehurst All Saints, we want to give our children the opportunity to work on specialised projects utilising materials like clay or textiles in addition to teaching them the fundamentals of drawing, painting, and colour mixing. They discover how Art reflects and shapes our history through studying great artists. Children make meaningful links, helping to strengthen and build connections in learning. We place a high importance on these traits and are eager to challenge, motivate, and engage children as a result. We want to provide our children with the information, abilities, and self-assurance they need to explore, invent, and produce their own works of art while also developing their own concepts and analysing the results.
Here at Micklehurst we follow the Access Art Split Curriculum, Art is taught in units of work. In order to explore and refine ideas before developing them further, artists start using sketchbooks. Children develop their skills systematically and are built upon over the years they are at primary school.
We also extend our Art curriculum further by providing children with opportunities to be creative in our Forest School, attend art and craft clubs and by entering local art events.
