Art & Design

ART and DESIGN at St. Peter’s

At St. Peter’s we aim to engage, inspire and challenge all pupils in Art and Design. We provide opportunities to encourage pupils to experiment, invent and create their own works of art and craft. By exploring lots of challenging media, art can help develop our children's resilience and determination to achieve well.

As the pupils progress, we build up thinking skills with which we can think critically about art and how art can reflect our country, culture and history. 

All pupils will produce creative work and become increasingly proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other artistic techniques. We can evaluate and analyse creative works and build up a language of art. We explore the work of great artists, crafts people and designers and form opinions and discuss their work critically. By developing their own thoughts, ideas and eyes, we aim to help our children engage in the visual beauty of the world around them and recognise their own abilities to contribute to their environment too.

KS1

Pupils use a range of materials to draw, paint and sculpt from experiences and imagination. KS1 pupils explore techniques using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space especially through looking at a range of artists and craft makers. Experimentation is key to our curriculum. KS1 children will also explore drawing skills within a sketchbook.

KS2

KS2 pupils develop techniques with more control and a wider awareness of art and design. Pupils still experiment and investigate through the use of a sketchbook and observations to help review their ideas. They improve their mastery of techniques with a range of materials to explore drawing, painting and sculpture. KS2 pupils continue to interact with the work of artists and designers as well as architects.

An ongoing document to record the journey in Art at St. Peter's.

Class 4 have painted their own colour wheel. We were learning how to mix primary colours. 
Class 4 have been creating some 'African Paintings". 

Class 4 made printing tiles and used them to make a fruit tablecloth.

UK2 have begun their 'Textiles' project by making felt from carded wool. Inspired by the paintings by Claude Monet of his gardens at Giverny, each child will make a felt panel to suggest the lily ponds that this artist based so much of his later work. Additional colours and shapes will be sewn onto the panels and displayed as a group piece.
Class 10 have developed their observational paintings of flowers into 3-d wire sculptures. The anatomy of lilies has been explored in coloured wire details.

Class 6 worked with a Chorley Ranger to link art with nature. We collected lots of things from outdoors and used them in an ephemeral art project.

Creative Course group have studied how artists are fascinated with light and shadow, for example, george de la Tour. We made observational studies of a still life with candles. We used graphite sticks, charcoal and chalk, 2b and 6b to explore shading and shadows. Our work is a mix of Year 3-6.
To understand the Easter story, we made collages of the Garden of Gethsemene and included other shapes and colours as symbols of the events over Easter. We had been inspired by Matisse's cut outs for our large whole class mural we made for the whole school Easter Garden and developed our ideas further in our own individual work.

In class 7 we practised our drawing skills using charcoal to draw the Iron Man by Ted Hughes

ART CREATIVE COURSE

we have been inspired by the visits of our sponsored guide dogs to create 3-d sculptures. guess what they're made from? Yes - rubbish! Plastic packaging and carrier bags make the best malleable material bound together with masking tape and then covered in a layer of PVA and white kitchen roll. Eventually they will be painted too. They even have their own characters and personalities. It took lots of perseverance as well as skill!

WIRE IN UKS2

Class 10 experimented with wire, inspired by the artist Celia Smith. We each made a flying bird which will be displayed as a flock in our Easter Garden.

Class 3 looked at the work of Keith Haring and used clay to make figures of Jesus and his disciples based on this. We had to use different techniques to make our figures.

Class 8 have made clay sculptures of Stonehenge!

Nicola Davies' 'A First Book of Nature' inspired Class 3 to create a beautiful autumn day wall hanging. 

We looked at the artist Barbara Hepworth. We made large scale drawings and then made our own sculpture in clay. We then used ICT skills and smart tools to layer a photograph of our sculptures and placed them on our school grounds.

Look at our fantastic polar bear sculptures which we made during our Creative Course for Art. We sketched in our sketchbooks to fully understand the form and shape of this amazing animal. We sculpted using plastic bags and packaging and masking tape. The children then covered their sculpture in kitchen roll and PVA.

Printmaking in LKS2 to enhance our Literacy work for the fantastic book 'The Promise' by Nicola Davies.

Year 1 looked carefully at animal prints and designed a motif to print.

We made a printing plate using Quick Print and here we are at work.
