At Evendons, we use art lessons to develop children’s creativity and their love of art. We want the children to have the skills to experiment, design and create their own artwork. We will provide the children with the opportunity to develop a range of skills and to work with different mediums.
Art lessons will often have cross curricular links, allowing the children to use art to help them learn about their current topics. The children will be exposed to a range of different styles of art and artists from a variety of cultures. Through discussions around artists’ work, children will develop an appreciation for art and the ability to form opinions on pieces of artwork.
In Art, children are encouraged to take risks and experiment with their ideas. They are encouraged to be reflective and evaluate their creative process, thinking about how they can make changes and keep improving throughout. This will be done through a range of meaningful verbal and written reflection.
