At Birch Copse, we want children to learn about great artists and sculptors from history and to use this to inspire them to create their own art. Whilst doing this, we want children to learn about the key skills associated with drawing, painting, sculpting and printmaking. We believe it is important that children learn to effectively critique their own and each other’s artwork in order to make improvements towards a final piece and this is reflected in every unit.
Every term, children will learn about a different art topic. Each unit of work will include a focus on improving specific art skills, knowledge about an artist and art movement and a final piece of art work. There is a Learning Parameters document for each unit of work, these can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
