Art is often linked to work in History and Geography as well as being taught as a subject in its own right. During their time at school, the children develop their practical skills in Art through using a range of materials and media; this includes the opportunity to use different types of paint, make sculptures in clay or recycled materials, explore a range of printmaking techniques, create collages and develop their drawing and mark-making skills using crayons, pencils and pastels. The children learn about both famous artists from history – this helps them to develop an understanding of the role of artists, designers and craftspeople and an awareness of range of artistic styles. They also look at a variety of artefacts within their topic work. Evaluation and Critical Analysis are key lifelong learning skills that are developed through Art.
