Our art projects at Brize provide opportunities for the children to:
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, understanding the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
Art and design provide countless opportunities for children to explore and enjoy their natural creativity. At Brize, we like to teach the basic skills of drawing, painting and colour-mixing, as well as providing opportunities to undertake more specialised projects using textiles or clay, for example. Art is project based, starting with sketch books to explore and practise ideas before developing them further. Through studying great artists they learn how these areas of the curriculum both reflect and shape our history. At Brize Norton Primary School we value these things highly and as such are keen to engage, inspire and challenge pupils. We aim to equip them with the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to experiment, invent and create their own pieces of art work, developing ideas themselves and evaluating the outcomes.
This all begins with our youngest children (Buccaneers). Giving children opportunities to be imaginative, explore different materials and develop their ideas is an important part of the Foundation Stage curriculum and provides the building blocks from which the rest or our Art curriculum is built on. Children begin their learning experience and develop their earliest skill sets in drawing, painting, printing, collage, sculpture and textiles during their time in Buccaneers.
