Art

As you can see in the above picture, our art gallery has a range of examples of art work across all year groups, focusing on a variety of different skills. You can see some pattern work, creating their own butterfly. Some 3D art work using straws to create a funny bones character and some self portraits, looking in the mirror and then sketching themselves. Super examples of great art work that happens here at Lordsgate, well done children! 

Art at Lordsgate

 

We teach art through a thematic approach using topics. Each class explores a range of artistic skills such as; sketching, painting, 3D models and evaluating artists work and their own pieces, as well as creating and displaying a skills book of practiced skills.

 

The children create a range of pieces linked to the topic that half term for example during Penguins, Possums and Pigs, the children create sketches of penguins using different materials; pencil, biro, chalk and charcoal. They also design and draw icicles from a range of lines and shades.

 

Each year the skills develop as the children move along their journey into different year groups- they also consolidate and practice previous skills to ensure they progress through their art work. Please see below an overview of what art looks like through school for this academic year.

 

We really hope the children enjoy their art leaning at Lordsgate. If the children complete anything art based at home, linked to their learning in school, we would love to see it.

 

Below is our art policy and some pictures of examples of our art work in school.
