Our Art Curriculum

Our art learning and visits

Take a look at some of the exciting visits and learning we have enjoyed this year!

Lockdown Photography Project

Our children enjoyed learning about photography and some of the techniques used in this art form during the national lockdown. The students uncovered how to notice shapes and outlines in a scene when studying architecture, to create better photos by using the rule of thirds, focusing on colour and the importance of creating flattering and professional portraits. Take a look at their work. 

Art CPD for our teachers

To support our teachers to deliver the art curriculum we have been expanding their subject knowledge and appreciation of art. Our teachers spent a day at the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery - they were the pupils for the day! We considered one piece of art as a focus for the morning, discussed what the artist was trying to convey, and what the 'story' of the painting might be. We even tried our hand at some sketching, and surprised ourselves at how enjoyable and interesting it was to do some art ourselves. It was great to experience a gallery visit in exactly the same way the children do. We then explored the galleries and identified works of art we would like to visit with our classes and explore with them.
