Art Curriculum

Through our art and design curriculum we want children at St. Clement’s to become curious life-long enthusiasts of art and artists. Through the use of the Kapow scheme, a structured and sequenced set of lessons, our children will have covered the skills required to meet the aims of the national curriculum. The aim of the scheme is to inspire pupils and develop their confidence to experiment and invent their own works of art. The intent is to ensure all pupils produce creative, imaginative work and have the opportunity to explore their ideas and record their experiences, as well as exploring the work of others and evaluate different creative ideas from around the world as well as learning about the rich heritage and culture of the British Isles and beyond.

Children will become confident and proficient in a variety of techniques including drawing, painting, sculpting, as well as other selected craft skills, e.g. collage, printing, weaving and patterns. Children will also develop their knowledge of famous artists, designers and craft makers. Children will also develop their interest and curiosity about art and design through a series of lessons offering skills progression, knowledge progression and offering children the opportunity to ask questions and demonstrate their skills in a variety of ways. The lessons will offer the chance for children to develop their emotional expression through art to enhance their personal, social and emotional development.

The art and design curriculum will develop the pupil’s knowledge and understanding of key artists and art movements as each unit has links to artist’s work. The units will support and scaffold essential and age appropriate sequencing of lessons. Creativity and independent outcomes are robustly embedded within the units. Pupils will be supported in learning how to make their own creative choices and decisions so that outcomes are knowledge-rich, unique and personal.
