Art

Key Stage 3 - Study Matrix 2019 – 2020

Rationale

To develop student creativity and ability to critically reflect on their own and the work of others. To research the Historical context of Art and explore a range of movements and skills. To explore how art and design is linked to a range of careers and embed an aspirational culture within the classroom. To develop independent working and confidence in their own abilities to create – the highest of blooms hierarchical thinking skills. Students are introduced to the work of a range of artists, designers, crafts, movements and cultures throughout the two years. This allows for the entirety of the core principles to be taught within both years 7 and 8.

Intent

Each year of study within Art and Design explores the core principles of; research, recording, evaluating and analysing, experimenting and creating. The content each year become more complex and requires more critical thinking and rigorous understanding of Art and Design. Students are introduced to the basics of art within year 7 through the research of formal elements, ‘classic’ artists and key movements within the history of art. Their knowledge is then expanded and developed upon within year 8, with more current artists and movements introduced. Students are taught to develop a critical understanding of art and how it can be used to convey a context.

Implementation

Students study the core principles outlined below throughout KS3.

Research The work of artists, designers, crafts people, film makers and sculptors is researched. The historical context of art is explored and students develop their understanding of the historical and cultural development of art.
Record Students explore a range of techniques and skills. Allowing them to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
Evaluate and Analyse The work of others as well as their own work is evaluated and analysed. Developing students critical understanding of art as well as developing their subject specific language through the use of tier 2 and 3 vocabulary
Experiment and Create Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences in relation to a range of sources and ideas.

Impact

The impact will be students who show a critical understanding of art across a range of disciplines. They will show a confidence in being able to create work within a range of materials and will be able to work independently with confidence. Students will have a broader vocabulary with which to describe the visual world and will better understand the importance of art in shaping the world we live in. At the end of KS3 students have a critical and cultural understanding of a range of artists, movements, skills and cultures which fosters a passion and interest in the subject which lasts for years to come.

Key Stage 4 - Study Matrix 2019 – 2020

Rationale

To embed student creativity and ability to critically reflect on their own and the work of others. To apply their research into the Historical context of Art and explore a range of movements and skills. To explore how art and design is linked to a range of careers and embed an aspirational culture within the classroom. To refine independent working and confidence in their own abilities to create – the highest of blooms hierarchical thinking skills.

Intent

Each year of study within Art and Design explores the core principles of; research, recording, evaluating and analysing, experimenting and creating. The content each year become more complex and requires more critical thinking and rigorous understanding of Art and Design. Students already have an embedded knowledge of the four core principles within Art and Design, both through their studies at KS3 and through studying photography in year 9. Students are expected to develop their own unique style and practice within year 10 and 11, allowing them to work independently and confidently across the assessment objectives.

Implementation

Students study the core principles outlined below throughout KS4.

Research The work of artists, designers, crafts people, film makers and sculptors is researched. The historical context of art is explored and students develop their understanding of the historical and cultural development of art.
Record Students explore a range of techniques and skills. Allowing them to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
Evaluate and Analyse The work of others as well as their own work is evaluated and analysed. Developing students critical understanding of art as well as developing their subject specific language through the use of tier 2 and 3 vocabulary
Experiment and Create Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences in relation to a range of sources and ideas.

Impact

The impact will be confident and creative students who show a critical understanding of art across a range of disciplines. They are able to create work within a range of materials and will be able to work independently. Students are unafraid to take risks in their creative process and as such become more resilient learners. Students will have a broad vocabulary with which to describe the visual world and will better understand the importance of art in shaping the world we live in.

Students leave St. Aidan’s with a passion for Art across a range of disciplines and show great pride in their own work. They have an appreciation of Art both within and outside of the classroom and know its importance in shaping the context and culture of Britain as well as the world.
