Art at The Meadows
We study art at The Meadows so that we can investigate the creativity of others, and use the ideas, knowledge and skills we identify to help us explore and express our own creative talents.
At The Meadows, children are encouraged to use their own imagination and ideas to facilitate learning through a range of creative approaches in art and design & technology. Knowledge and associated skills are taught, which can then be applied across the curriculum in a range of contexts. Planning, creating, performing and evaluating are key parts of creative learning. Children study famous artists from different creative genres and learn specific knowledge about people, art movements and key terminology.
During the academic year 2020-21, our focus is on 'Year B' plans. During the autumn term 2020, some elements of 'Year A' plans have been taught as a result of school closures earlier in the year.
