Intent statement for Art:
At Wilbraham Primary School we aim to provide an inspiring, practical Art curriculum which builds on children’s early creative experiences and desire to express. We intend to give children opportunities to explore and investigate a range of materials, to gain knowledge of these, to develop skills and techniques, and to then use these to express ideas, feelings and experiences. The curriculum is progressive and allows children to build on skills, knowledge and techniques year on year. The children will develop ideas whilst learning to use a range of materials competently (understanding their limitations and possibilities) and make art which focuses on a range of visual and tactile elements. These elements (texture, drawing, form, pattern, printing and colour) will form the starting point for planning a series of lessons which will challenge and encourage thinking and discussion. Children will learn about artists from a variety of backgrounds developing their cultural knowledge. In responding to these works, and their own they will develop their visual, descriptive and emotive language. They will have opportunities to make visits to local Art galleries to make links and further their understanding.
