The teaching of Art at Holbeach ensures the children acquire skills in drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, textiles, collage, design and IT. Each activity builds on the skills already achieved and are linked to the pupils’ stages of development. These are developed continually through KS1 and KS2 focusing on the visual elements of shape, line, pattern, colour, texture, tone, form and space.
Pupils work from direct observation, imagination, man-made and the natural environment. Their knowledge of other artists’ and designers’ work is developed and related to their own work. They are taught to develop their own ideas using a variety of different stimuli to express ideas and feelings.
