Art & Design

Art at home

During these unprecedented times, it has never been more important to keep spirits up and express yourselves. Included here are some ideas and links to activities you can do at home. Get creative and share your brilliance with us on Twitter! 

 

- Try recreating famous pieces of art with objects and materials from around the house. For example: Can you recreate the famous Mona Lisa painting using similar clothes and a background you have painted yourself? 

- Could you use chalk in your garden to create a hopscotch course for you and your family to tackle? Maybe you could create a square that lets you give our Key Workers a cheer, or round of applause, when you land in it? 

- Could you create a piece of art that thanks our amazing Key Workers for the brilliant jobs they are doing? Is there somewhere in your home where you can display it so that you can inspire people who see it?

Our Intent

Introduction to ART across the school.

Art is taught and linked to topics currently being studied in and around our core texts; making it applicable and meaningful. A variety of progressive skills are covered in the areas of drawing, painting, 3D work, collage, printing, textiles and Digital Media. In the EYFS and Year 1 classes, Art is regularly incorporated into our 'themed curriculum' approach. All children focus on the skills covered in our curriculum by researching, evaluating and developing their own skills in the different medias focused on in their own Year groups. Furthermore, across the school, children have the chance to attend Art and Drama based clubs and workshops after school. These clubs develop their skills in collage, origami, drama and the planning and production of models. There are also opportunities for pupils to show off their art skills in competitions that take place in school and out. Our most recent competition involved children designing their own album cover in the style of Sir Peter Blake; getting the chance to have their work displayed in one of Liverpool's top museums.
