Art exploration encourages an interest in the arts and aims to develop students’ cognitive skills and self-esteem. Children will be exposed to a range of artists and media in order to develop their own sense of self-expression. We will look at various art movements, including cubism and impressionism, modern art and surrealism. The focus will be for children to interpret these pieces in their way, not create identical pieces of artwork. We will look at using different techniques: sketch, charcoal, oil pastels, paints, clay, photography etc.
Towards the end of the academy period, we would work towards a final piece of artwork (canvas, pottery etc) that the children will ‘exhibit’ for their parents and the EYC at the end of the term. These could remain up for the next term.
