Art enables students to build upon their skills and knowledge as they progress through the key stages. Each scheme of work teaches students to develop their drawing and recording skills. They will explore and refine their use of media and develop contextual understanding by researching the work of historical and contemporary artists and designers. Metacognitive skills are woven into the curriculum with students able to prepare and plan for future developments in their work and to monitor and reflect on their progress. Through Art we aim to promote a love of learning and use creative work as an expression of artistry. Art gives every student a place and a voice to connect and develop, it is here students can deepen their artistry and thrive. These skills nurtured and developed in the Art department support student aspirations within the wider curriculum and beyond.
