Welcome to The Art Department

“ART ENABLES US TO FIND OURSELVES AND LOSE OURSELVES AT THE SAME TIME”
Thomas Merton

 

Our curriculum is designed to encourage learners to develop knowledge and understanding, creativity, the practice of investigation and making, based on personal experiences, taught skills and critical understanding.  This is regardless of their experiences or skills set, as they embark on their journey in Art from Year 7.
 

 

SEQUENTIAL KNOWLEDGE – CULTURAL CAPITAL – CREATIVE CHOICES - SPIRIT

 

My Art helps me for the future when:

  • Creativity: I can solve problems in an imaginative way - at home or work.

  • Visualise: I see the bigger picture of a task, I am industrious and see a job through to the end.

  • Precision: Skills I use enable accurate, controlled work whether I become a mechanic, surgeon, beautician or architect.

  • Focus: I make good progress in the work place as I can self-regulate and concentrate for long periods of time.

  • Dexterity: I can use fine motor skills when tricky, small tasks need completing.

  • Articulate: I can talk in groups or with individuals confidently - teamwork and a presentation at work or talk to my boss

  • Analyse: I can evaluate the strengths of a job or areas that need improving and act.

  • Vocabulary: I know an array of words and understand their meaning across a number of subjects, jobs or roles.

  • Resilience: I see a job through to its completion and if I make a mistake I can adjust accordingly - perseverance, and ‘Thinking on my feet’.

  • Culture: My character education in Art allows a mature and content outlook on   different cultures and people in our    workplace, community and school.

  • Judgements: I have integrity, and have opinions which I can share, but understand I will meet different personalities, yet respect their opinions.

 

Pupils will engage with the creative process, allowing learners to develop, explore, record and realise their intentions in a vast array of materials and experiences. They will acquire a range of critical and contextual knowledge, developing understanding and the ability to review and refine their work and fellow artists. This format is a consistent approach, which spans the ages of our learners, whether 11 or 18. Importantly, this methodology is also integral to their success.
