At St. John’s, our aim is to give children the skills and knowledge to remain an artist as they grow up.

 

Throughout our school, children will explore and develop their skills and creativity using a wide range of media and being exposed to a range of artists and artistic styles.

We value the use of sketch books to document the process of learning. Children will analyse real artist's work to find out how art can be created and to express their own opinions. They will practise a wide variety of skills using different media, then plan and develop their own pieces of art work, being able to use those skills they have learned and practised.

 

We aim to foster a positive attitude to art while giving pupils success, pleasure, enjoyment and confidence in their work. We hope to develop a broad understanding of the meaning, significance and contribution of art, craft and design and an appreciation of the aesthetic qualities of life, whilst ensuring that pupils have access to opportunities provided by the National Curriculum programme of study. 

The aims of art taken from the 2014 National Curriculum are to ensure that all pupils:
 

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences.
  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.
  • evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design.
  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
