A Yattendon artist ...

uses visual language, materials, processes and techniques skillfully and convincingly to express emotions and interpret observations. They communicate fluently in visual and tactile form, with independence, initiative and originality. They draw confidently and adventurously from observation, memory and imagination. They hold an impressive knowledge and understanding of artists, craft-makers and designers. They can reflect on, analyse and critically evaluate their own work and that of others.

Through our Art curriculum and enrichment provision, we aim to nurture the following essential characteristics of artists:

 

  • confidence in the use of materials, processes and techniques to express emotions and interpret observations.
  • use art to communicate fluently in visual and tactile form, with independence, initiative and originality

The 2014 National Curriculum for Design and Technology aims to ensure that all pupils:

 

 

  • 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, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

The Children enjoy art  Children from Foundation Stage to Year 6 were questioned  and all enjoy art very much and relish the opportunities to express themselves, learn about famous artists and technique. They can talk about art confidently and articulately about the art they do and what they learn. It is very clear that they are proud of the art they create.

Here are some of the children's comments:

“Art is like writing what is in your imagination”

 

“It’s a way of expressing your feelings”

"I enjoy art because I like the feeling of pencil on paper, it is much better than on a tablet!"

 

“ I love drawing natural objects as being outside with nature is relaxing, it makes me happy”

 

"Art is peaceful and calming"

 

"I like all the different colours"

 

Foundation Stage learnt about Andy Goldsworthy and land sculpture. They had a go with some fantastic results.
