Art at Goldington Green Academy
Our art and design curriculum 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.
Pupils have opportunities to work with a range of materials and media to create different works of art, some of which is linked to the topic or theme that the class is learning about. In addition to this our pupils learn about different artists through history, about their life and their artistic style.
A further appreciation of art is fostered through the enrichment opportunities that we provide for our pupils, such as trips to local galleries, exhibitions and visitors into school. Projects have been undertaken in school, which have led to our pupils creating works of art for various showcases.
