“All children are artists”
Art stimulates creativity, imagination and inventiveness.
Our vision at Holme Slack Community Primary School, is to deliver a creative curriculum which is accessible to all of our children and tailor it to their needs.
We aim to provide exciting and purposeful cross curricular learning experiences, which contain plentiful of opportunity for self-expression and creativity through first hand experiences by using a variety of media.
Our purpose of Art and Design education is to provide our pupils with the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express their responses to ideas and experiences in a visual or tactile form.
We use sketchbooks to document the children's artistic journey from the beginning of year 1 to year 6. Sketchbooks can become a timeline of skills, observations, and achievements which allow the children to review and reflect on previous work, to develop their ideas and artistic ability.
Through our arts curriculum, we aim to build on self-esteem and resilience to encourage children to think outside the box and channel their creativity, empowering them to take control of their learning and discover their true potential.
We looked at Jackson Pollock's art work and discussed his style of painting. The children chose to use lots of different colours for their large collaborative art piece, it was messy experience but so much fun!
We recreated some of Monet's most famous paintings, paying close attention to the colours and light in his paintings. We used our finger tips and cotton buds to blend the colours. Take a look at our work!
Year 3 used water colour for their Stonehenge work and oil pastels to create cave paintings.
They loved being creative!
