Art & Design
Art and Design
As with all subjects, we ensure a progression in the full range of skills needed by the children and promoting breadth and balance in their work is very important to us.
Children love art, our approach enthuses the children and leads to some really exciting art, craft and design opportunities within the overall topic-based approach. Art, craft and design provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the world. Enabling children to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern- using different materials and processes, the art, craft and design experiences at Buglawton have a positive impact on other areas of the curriculum.
Children's Art Week 2020
As part of our in school and home learning we have been looking at the life and work of a contemporary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. As part of this learning the children across Buglawton Primary School were set two Art and Design Challenges;
We wanted to encourage our children to work with a range of different media and materials that they had available whilst incorporating their own individual flair to their designs. This opportunity to embark on a child initiated art project ensured that the outcome of both of these challenges displayed a clear breadth of skill application through the key stages.
