Art

Art at Great Moor is led by Mrs MacManus.

Art is highly valued at Great Moor Juniors.  We follow the National Curriculum guidelines and understand the importance of allowing children to express themselves creatively. To ensure that we do this we give them a wide range of activities and experiences within drawing, painting, printing, sculpture and textiles. Each Year Group's Art curriculum is summarised in the attached Knowledge Organisers.  We are aware that children may excel at some areas within Art but not others, eg. they may be skilful at sculpture but are not so proficient when painting, so it is important we give them every opportunity to experience creative success. The children’s artistic knowledge and skills are developed, and built upon, during the 4 years that they are with us.  All year groups use sketchbooks to record ideas and as a scrapbook in which to keep items of inspiration and photographs of finished pieces.

 

In addition to practical activities, children in every year group study establishes artists; male, female, contemporary and those from earlier times.  Examples include Caravaggio, Roy Lichtenstein, Gunta Stolzl, Andy Warhol, Cezanne and Derain. The children discuss and evaluate work by these artists as well as work completed by their peers and themselves.

 

Finally, we endeavour to bring artists into school to lead workshops as well as taking the children to Art galleries to broaden their experiences.
