From January 2021 Homerswood will be using the Kapow Art scheme of work. This is an exciting and fun scheme which reflects a clear progression of skills.
Children develop their creativity and imagination through a range of activities. They learn to investigate materials and control tools. They learn new techniques with colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. They develop their skills in drawing, painting and sculpture, using sketchbooks to collect record and evaluate their ideas. The children also learn about great craftsmen, artists and designers. There is an opportunity to evaluate work where the children can critique their own work and that of others.
Each term the children are encouraged to create piece of artwork for the school gallery. Prizes are awarded for the most creative ideas. Good luck and have fun!
Art learning is well underway in classes and the children are enjoying exploring and developing their art skills and researching a variety of artists. This term, through a spiral curriculum, the children will be practising formal elements of art and design (Shape, line colour, texture, pattern, tone) to develop full appreciation for the subject and its form.
Remember to check here regularly to see exciting art updates and photos of work from across the school!
Each class have created a display to represent their class artist.
