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
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.
We explored pattern in the natural world.
