Art and Design

Art at Forest Glade Primary School aims to encourage interest in and enjoyment of drawing, painting and sculpting.  We want to give children an understanding of techniques to create effects, the different media that can be used and the work of different artists.

This is achieved through a range of learning opportunities and experiences delivered through an enquiry approach as a curriculum enhancer.  Children learn key knowledge and are encouraged to develop the skills of an artist such as techniques using line, colour, pattern, texture and shape for effect.

A year 6 artist can:

  • Describe an art technique and say why it is effective.
  • Explain how to show emotion and movement in art.
  • Name 2 artists and talk about their work.
