Our aim at Merrow Juniors is to provide an art and design curriculum which enthuses and challenges all pupils. Children are given the opportunity to develop their own unique and personal creative ideas, observing and responding to the world around them. They experience a range of materials and tools, developing skills in drawing, painting, 3D work, collage, photography and textiles. They develop an understanding of key artists, crafts people and designers applying this knowledge to their own work. They have the opportunity to evaluate their own work and that of others in a constructive manner using the language of art, craft and design. Each child has their own sketchbook in which they can collect, develop, research and review their work.
On leaving Merrow Schools Federation a successful learner of this subject will:
- Be able to produce creative work, exploring and recording their ideas in a sketchbook;
- Become more proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art and craft techniques;
- Use the language of art and design to evaluate their own work and the work of others;
- Have an understanding of great artists, craft makers and designers.
