At Victoria Academy, we believe that pupils should master Art and Design skills through effective teaching of the key areas; making, generating ideas, formal elements, knowledge of artists and evaluation of their art.
Our intention is to inspire children to be confident and creative pupils with the opportunities to express themselves. We feel by giving the children the skills and exposing them to a range of work produced by artists this will enhance their ability to apply their skills and be able to communicate their views and opinions on a range of artwork.
We use and adapt ‘CUSP’ to plan our Art and Design curriculum as it fits with our teaching and learning approach of revisiting key areas and provides a clear progression of skills for the pupils.
Each year group covers units on the following areas: Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking.
