Art & Design

The art curriculum at Harris Academy Philip Lane has been designed to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. It aims to provide the children with opportunities to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design.

The pupils in Year one have a weekly art lesson which links to their topic. They learn to use a range of materials creatively and how to draw and paint using a range of techniques. They experiment with colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. We teach them how to develop and share their ideas, experiences and to use their imagination. They also learn about the work of a range of artists.

Children in Years 2 – 6 have their art lessons blocked into Art Weeks.  This allows the children to embark on bigger projects and really develop their skills through the redrafting and development of their work.

During art week, pupils are given the opportunity to produce creative work, explore their ideas and record their experiences. They also develop their skills and knowledge to enable them to evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design. The art work produced is often inspired by their topic work and cross curricular links are planned, to enrich the pupils’ learning in other subject areas.  Likewise, the skills and knowledge taught during the teaching of art are transferred and used in other subjects, helping to provide a more creative curriculum.

The children are taught to use sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit their ideas. They are also given the opportunity to improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials

In order to develop pupils’ critical eye and appreciation of art, pupils discover and learn about great artists, architects and designers in history and develop their understanding of the historical and cultural development of their art forms. Through discussions, self and peer assessments, pupils develop their ability to describe the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines and make links to their own work.

Above all, the teaching of art at Philip Lane is full of enthusiasm and love for the subject. Previous art weeks have been highly successful and pupils are extremely proud of their attainment and progress. They love to show off their work to their friends and families during our art exhibitions and examples of the children’s work can be seen displayed around the academy and on our website.
