Art Curriculum Intent

Art Curriculum Intent

To develop children’s understanding of different artists, art forms and to promote independence to express themselves how they choose. Children will be thinking about their feelings, interests and likes to develop mindfulness through all art forms. 

“No time is wasted in lessons.  They often start with competitive, challenging activities before moving on to an even deeper exploration of concepts and to new content.”  Ofsted 2018

Introduction to Art

Introduction to Art

At Kentmere Academy the Art and Design Curriculum develops children’s knowledge of art skills, such as making, generating ideas and being able to evaluate their own and others’ work. They gain knowledge of artists and develop formal elements such as texture, tone, line, pattern, shape and colour. Art is linked to key topics to give meaning and allow children to express themselves through their own experiences freely using imagination and inspiration.
