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
This year we focused our work on different artists and their styles. Each class saw the work and families even visited too.
Reception pupil - There are lots of pictures in the hall. I have never been to an art exhibition before. It was really good.
Reception pupil – My favourite picture was the fruit ones because they looked funny and have lots of colours.
Reception pupil – My favourite one was the stone sculptures that nursery made. I like the shapes.
Reception pupil – I saw Captain Tom. They stuck things on to make the picture and it looked like Captain Tom.
