Art and Design at Kibblesworth Academy
At Kibblesworth Academy we strive to provide our pupils with engaging and inspiring opportunities within their Art and Design lessons. We aim to equip the children with the knowledge and skills to allow them to experiment and create their own works of art, designs and crafts. As our pupils progress through school we provide the children with opportunities to understand how art and design has changed throughout history and the way in which individual crafts have developed and changed over time.

The national curriculum for art and design 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.
Within Key Stage One children are taught:
  • To use a range of materials creatively to design and make products
  • To use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination
  • To develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space
  • About the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work
Within Key Stage Two children are taught:
  • To create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas
  • To improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay]
  • About great artists, architects and designers in history
