Our Art vision is to creatively explore ideas through experimentation.
Intent, Implementation and Impact in Art and design.
Our intent is that the golden threads of Alwoodley are woven through the Art curriculum. We want to inspire and challenge children, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to participate in, experiment with, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
Golden thread one – We believe creative thinking and problem-solving opportunities in our Art lessons equip children with the skills they need in other areas of the curriculum and beyond the classroom. We support children in their learning journey to organise their thoughts, feelings and ideas through sketch book work.
Golden thread two – a love of reading is supported in Art where children enjoy researching and gathering information about the work of other artists. ‘Reading’ Art work using thinking tools encourages children to look deeper and use inference and prediction skills to gain information about pieces.
Golden thread three – We want children to be inspired by a diverse range of artists, crafts people and designers and recognise the importance of Art in different cultures that are represented in our school.
We want children to be able to express themselves through different media and feel empowered to think creatively. We intend to make all learning meaningful and memorable.
