Art and Design

Skills and Progressions

At Brading CE Primary School, we highly value the creative curriculum. As part of our lessons, we aim to bring out the artist from within all of our children. We aim for children to discover a passion for the subject and to have the opportunity to develop and broaden their creativity through cross-curricular linked schemes of work. The children engage in a broad range of art which includes artists from all backgrounds. These lessons engage, inspire and challenge pupils through:
• Drawing
• Painting
• Printmaking
• Collage
• Sculpture
• Textiles
• ICT linked Art

Within lessons, children focus on learning and developing their artistic techniques using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. This equips them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of Art, craft and design. Children at Brading study, and are inspired by a range of artists, both past and present, and use this work to make links to their own. This allows each child to discover their creative side and find a love for art and design.

All Design and Art at Brading is evidenced in children’s books. In these books, children record their sequence of learning allowing for assessment of progress whilst also displaying their knowledge and skills. Showing off great work is key at Brading. We take pride in displaying the children’s Art and design work both inside the classroom and around the school.
