Primary and Nursery School

‘A pathway to grow, be curious and discover’

Art

 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 Subject Guidance

Sokari Douglas Camp is a Nigerian artist who is famous or her sculptures. Her work is predominantly sculptured in steel. She takes a lot of inspiration or her work from her Nigerian heritage and culture. We were inspired by her work 'The World is Now Richer' which was made as a tribute to people who lived their lives as slaves. She shared the important message: 'We were brave, we were strong and we survived'. We created our own pieces of Art work in the same style. We thought of a word to describe an attribute that the consider to be important.

Autumn 2021

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.
