ART

Curriculum Intent

In KS3 students will be introduced to the key concepts of art and will progress to more complex techniques and the combining of materials. Schemes of work will have a historical and a contemporary focus to ensure that learning is both meaningful and current. As students develop, they will gain an insight into industry-based practice such as photography, architecture, ceramics or printmaking for example. 

In KS4 students will self-select from a variety of starting points or suggest their own if appropriate to their interests and ability. The curriculum follows a logical order from initial responses to recording and then to critical study. Interspersed with the sustained project is a series of skills workshop that develop and extend existing drawing, printing and photography skills. Students will record their learning journeys in visual and written forms.
