Belvidere Art Curriculum

At Belvidere, we want our children to enjoy creating pieces of art for a given purpose, and for personal enjoyment and a sense of wellbeing. The great artists are sources of inspiration to our children. Technical skills are developed so that our children can create their own works of art with confidence and flair. In line with the National Curriculum for art, our intent is that all children

Our curriculum will is designed with five strands that run throughout. These are:

● Generating ideas

● Using sketchbooks

● Making skills, including formal elements (line, shape, tone, texture, pattern, colour)

● Knowledge of artists

● Evaluating and analysing Units of lessons are sequential, allowing children to build their skills and knowledge, applying them to a range of outcomes.

The formal elements, a key part of the National Curriculum, are also woven throughout units. Key skills are revisited again and again with increasing complexity in a spiral curriculum model. This allows pupils to revise and build on their previous learning.

Units in each year group are organised into four core areas:

● Drawing

● Painting and mixed-media

● Sculpture and 3D

● Craft and design
