Art and Design Technology
The work completed in Art and Design Technology is linked to the wider AAT curriculum.
The Art curriculum is planned so that over time pupils learn a range of artistic techniques which become increasingly complex as they move through the school. We enjoy strong links with local arts groups, including the De La Warr Pavilion, and we are regularly involved in projects with artists from the local community.
Our Art and Design Technology curriculum is designed to be exciting and progressive, giving children opportunities to create, investigate and develop a rich foundation of artistic vocabulary, knowledge and skills.
At King Offa Primary Academy, children are exposed to the works of both historical and contemporary artists and designers whereby children -
- explore and develop their creativity, own interpretations and self-expression
- develop their technical art skills and techniques using a wide range of media and materials, including printing, painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, textiles and digital media
- discover and experiment alongside high quality teaching
- collaborate with others
- evaluate and discuss their own work and that of others
