§ become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques

§ evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design

§ know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of art forms.

 

 

Key stage 1

Pupils will be taught:

§ to use a range of materials creatively to design and make products

§ to use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination

§ to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space

§ about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.

 

Key stage 2

Pupils will be taught to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.
