Core Essence:

Art, craft and design embody the highest forms of human creativity. We, at Westmorland, aim to engage, inspire and challenge our children, encouraging them to experiment, invent and create their own works of art by equipping them with the relevant skills and knowledge.

 

Key Questions:

  • Do I like it?
  • Why? What? When? Who? Where? How?
  • What has the artist used?
  • Is it effective?
  • What have I used?
  • How can I improve it?

 

Essential Key Skills:

  • To use, experience and explore a wide range of materials, media and techniques creatively, progressing to recording their observations and experiences.
  • To explore, develop and improve their mastery of art techniques, including using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space, through drawing, painting and sculpture.
  • To learn about the work of a range of artists, describing the differences and similarities throughout history.
