Art & Design
“Creativity takes courage.” Henri Matisse
I am Miss Burgoyne and I lead art at Rose Hill Primary School.
Art can be enjoyed by everyone! Art can never be wrong! I love looking at art, finding out about different artists and then experimenting with painting, drawing and using different things to make into masterpieces.
At Rose Hill every child has the opportunity to take part in art sessions where we cover 6 key skills every year.
We complete different work linked to the curriculum, so that art is relevant and meaningful for the children.
The key skills in art are drawing, painting, 3D work, textiles, collage and printing.
As our classes are mixed year groups, we cover the areas on a 2 year cycle, looking at the different skills needed over the 2 years.
The curriculum has also been structured to feature different artists for the children to learn about. Some of these artists are very well known but we have also added some lesser known artists, to broaden the children’s knowledge.
I have enjoyed learning more about the different artists as a teacher and I know that the children will enjoy learning more about these artists and go on to appreciate different pieces of work. I can’t wait to continue to see the journey that the children go on, as artists, at Rose Hill.
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
What does that look like at Rose Hill Primary School?
We believe that every child is an artist. There is no ‘wrong’ in art as art is individual and is an experience. Children are taught the skills needed to feel more confident in experimenting and to become more independent in their choices of media and techniques.
The seven elements of art (colour, shape, space, value, line, form, texture) are the stepping stones to any unit of art. As the children progress throughout the school, they will learn more about each element and how they can use them to produce pieces of work, as well as evaluating and modifying their work, in their sketchbooks.
