Who is the course designed for?
The Art course is designed for students at KS2. The course aims to develop students’ imagination and creativity, as well as their understanding and enjoyment of the arts. There is a focus on key skills in Art and Design. Students are encouraged to follow a creative process, share their ideas and experiment with new techniques.
This course follows the English KS2 curriculum for art, adapted for online teaching. Many practical techniques are implemented and this includes; watercolour painting, pencil drawing and photography. Every few weeks the focus is on a different type of art, learning about and from a variety of artists along the way. The course begins by looking at self-portraits through photography. Later the course introduces a wide range of art to the students so they are able to apply this knowledge in the future. Teachers make use of the webcam feature each week to guide students through the various techniques. The completed pieces of Art that are produced by the students are shared for viewing and feedback. This may be during the session or week to week as part of a homework assignment or an independent study activity.
