Art Curriculum Overview

National Curriculum

Art Curriculum

 

Purpose of study

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

 

Aims

The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • 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 their art forms.

 

Attainment targets

By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study

Art Skills Progression

 

In collaboration with our Art Curriculum, we devised a programme that helps every child track their artistic skill set through a checklist of progressive learning objectives. These progressive art skills have been identified and broken down into areas of learning that allow both teachers and pupils to highlight their creative learning on a lesson-by-lesson basis. The idea is that it allows us to see how individual pupils have progressed over an academic year, enabling us to see which of the skill set learning objectives have been accessed and highlighting creative skill sets to be targeted for future learning. These sheets are part of their individual Art Journals and continue over the year groups. In each we are able to see where their creative learning has taken them and shows evidence of specific learning outcomes. 

The following documents show the Art Skills Progression Checklist across KS1, LKS2 and UKS2. They have also been adjusted for SEN pupils and those who may struglle with some of the general skill set so they can be adapted to use across the whole school.
