Welcome to our Art and Design page!
At Walker we aim to develop children's knowledge and understanding of various artists, art styles and provide opportunities for using a wide range of media. Children are also able to develop their different techniques and styles through a variety of topics. Our National Curriculum for Art and Design will give children '...the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design'.
Within each teaching and learning block, children throughout Walker will be finding out about a famous artist, sculptor, designer or architect. It is important that we know and understand how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and also how it can contribute to the culture and creativity of our school.
Examples of Art and Design topics taught and learned throughout Walker School:
Year 3 are studying Henry Moore’s sculptures and have designed their own by sketching ideas down first. They will then go onto experimenting with materials such as foil and clay. They started off with newspaper, then paper and loved scrunching, twisting, folding and creating strong stable structures. Have a look at what they did!
