Art Curriculum Intent:

‘You make a point of looking at an object. You see the object. You notice the true nature of it’s entirety and it’s parts. You relate it’s space and action. You admire it’s survival and you love it’s commonness and individuality’.  

William Saroyan.

Art plays an important part in the Peckover curriculum, drawing form an early age helps children order their world and make sense of it. We place a special emphasis on children working from observation in order for children to understand their world.

From observation we study the skills of: line, shape, form, tone, texture, pattern, colour and composition which are vital in underpinning creative work. We focus on a carefully selected number of skills to ensure progression and continuity as children progress through school:

Foci:

Pattern making  Drawing from observation and imagination.

Painting from observation and imagination. 

Textiles: weaving and stitching. 

3D work:@ Clay and modroc. 

Printing: potato and press print.

Implementation

A sequence of work begins with studying the work of great artists, designers or craft-makers. Followed by observational studies from first- hand experience,  before moving onto selected skills to explore the subject. The stimulus for the art work links to the theme of our integrated curriculum.
