Our Art curriculum provides children with the opportunity to understand and respond to the world. It enables them to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form and pattern.
At Bevington, children are encouraged to evaluate their own ideas and the work of others, saying what they think and feel about it. They explore a range of artists, developing these influences into their own work.
At Bevington art experiences are often adapted to reflect the local environment of the school and the cultural influences of the children.
Areas of Learning
Skills in sketching lie at the heart of our Art curriculum. We understand that ability to use and manipulate simple marks to achieve an outcome are the backbone of the artistic discipline.
Art is taught within the context of the pupils’ termly topic. Each unit has a focus based on one of the following skills:
- Digital Art
- 3D Sculpture
Please find the progression map for Art at Bevington below. This map details the skills and knowledge pupils are taught in each year through the school.
We hold regular art mornings to celebrate art across the school. Each art morning takes an artist or a piece of work as a focal point. Pupils across the school then work during the morning to create their own response to this stimulus.
