Art Vision Statement

 

At Fulwood St. Peter’s we intend art to allow all pupils to express their inner artist.

Beginning in EYFS, pupils develop confidence to work collaboratively in teams to critique the work of others with the aim of improving the overall work. Our extensive grounds pose inspiration for real-life experiences with nature allowing pupils to observe and replicate patterns, textures and colours within their creations. Each child has the ability to approach the study of an artist from their own perspective, taking inspiration and insight from the real life original artwork and independently conceiving their own piece to be proud of. Our art curriculum has been developed so that there is a freedom to choose method and materials for all pupils in each learning opportunity. It is also planned so that pupils can broaden and deepen their exposure to a variety of artistic styles from various periods of history.

 

 

Examples of Implementation 

Choices

In year 6 we have created our own work based on the artists Roy Lichtenstein. The children have looked at his work and style and chosen their own ideas in order to replicate this. Have a look. 

Y2 in Art have been using different materials to replicate the textures of a beach.

Y2 in Art we have been drawing Vincent Van Gogh painting, ‘Fishing Boats on the Beach at Saintes Marie’s de la Mer’. We had the choice to choose what colour tint we would like to use for our sky, sea and sand. We also got to choose what colour pastel crayons we would like to use for our boats.

Y2 decided which Paul Klee artwork they would like to recreate using different mediums to add colour.

Year 3 deciding which tartan print best represents their heritage. 

Y4 deciding which landscape image to be inspired by and which medium to use to add colour

Depth

Y4 Learning how to create perspective using vanishing lines

Independence

Y2 have been using their 5 senses to help them observe a landscape. The children also thought about what art techniques they think the artist has used.

Y2 have been learning how to make many tones of one colour by adding white.

Y2 we have created our very own Mondrian piece of art, using different lengths of rectangles and primary colours.

Y2 have also created colour wheels using primary and secondary colours.

Year 3 creating colour wheels and experimenting with mixing primary colours.

Y4 Researching and presenting ideas on Gormley

Leading Teams
Real Life

We have also been looking at real life patterns and fabric in Year 6. We have designed our own fabric ideas and tested a range of media on these to see which would work best.

Reception-painting with daffodils

The children enjoyed colour mixing primary colours to make green and did their own paintings, inspired by daffodils. Some chose to paint with the stalk of the daffodil and others used the petals.
