Art and DT
Why is Art and Design important at Lamerton and Gulworthy?
At FLAG, we value Art and Design as an important part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. Art and Design provides the children with the opportunities to develop and extend skills and an opportunity to express their individual interests, thoughts and ideas.
What does Art and Design look like at FLAG?
From Year 1 onwards, we have termly units in which the children are introduced to the work of a particular artist, study a specific painting or other work , identifying techniques. The final objective is never to attempt to produce an exact copy of the work we are looking at but we do practise details and effects from the original which the children can then begin to use in their own creative work. In this way, they can experiment with and improve their mastery of a wide range of media until they are themselves confident and independent artists while at the same time, learning about art history and making rich and powerful links to other areas of the curriculum.
Children were invited to enter a Tavistock Art Exhibition to raise funds for community art at Kingdom house.
