Art and Design

At Naunton Park, Art and Design fits within our whole school CHALLENGE curriculum to provide our children with a great education, to develop a love of learning and the capacity to make a difference in their lives.

Art lessons give our children opportunities to express themselves as an individual and allows time for curiosity and reflection. Art and design activities allow children to develop their own thinking and questioning skills. This will enable them to gain knowledge and understanding of the world around them and its people, and prepare them for the future.

Our Art curriculum provides children with opportunities to develop their skills and knowledge using a range of media and materials. Children learn the skills of drawing, painting, printing, collage, textiles, 3D work and digital art and are given the opportunity to explore and evaluate different creative ideas. Children gain deep knowledge about a range of diverse artists, styles of art and art from different cultures and time periods. Art sessions include discussions about their work and the work of others, using a range of subject specific vocabulary. Our pieces of learning allow for blocks of art rather than shorter weekly lessons, this gives children more time to think and create more deeply and focus on fewer things in greater depth.

To allow our children to focus on fewer things in greater depth, think deeply and produce high quality work; we are following a 3 year rolling programme.

Year A – focus on 3D work and sculpture

Year B – focus on painting

Year C – focus on printing and textiles

Drawing and artist study will be continual threads that run through our art curriculum and build into each of the above focus areas.
