At Longwick, we believe that Art lessons and activities are a vital part of our school life.
During Art and Design lessons we intend to provide opportunities for the children to express themselves and become more confident in their abilities; this links to our school aims of developing confident, curious, independent and resilient life-long learners alongside SMSC opportunities.
We also aim to develop an appreciation of Art by using lessons to explore the work of others. This time is used to showcase work from a diverse range of artists, including a variety of cultures, male and female artists and people throughout history.
Longwick's Art Curriculum
Yearly overviews of units are uploaded below - please note that this is a guide and unit lengths may change dependent on teacher judgement. Make sure to check your curriculum map on you class page for more information each half term. There is also a document explaining how skills in each unit are developed through the years at Longwick.
Amazing Art at home
During our school closure, Longwick children carried on with their Art learning at home. Here are a few examples of some of the fabulous pieces they created:
Art Week 2020
This year, our Art Week theme was 'The World Around Us'. Each class experimented with different mediums and materials and were inspired by our surroundings and artists. All children's work as displayed at the Longwick Art Show during February half term. Have a look at some of our amazing pieces below:
Art Week 2019
Our theme for Art week this year was 'All around the world'. Each class focused on a different continent for the week and completed a variety of Art activities connected to their continent. They looked at famous artists, landmarks and the cultures of the countries within the continent. Each class took part in a music workshop where they experienced traditional music from that continent. We ended the week with a school gallery to celebrate our learning and we loved sharing our learning with our friends and family!
