The core knowledge and skills have been chosen to aid pupil’s understanding of art. At Nonsuch, children are exposed to a range of art forms, this allows them to develop and master a range of techniques and skills. Threads of art have been carefully mapped to ensure knowledge and skills are interrelated over time. These threads include: Drawing, Paint Sculpture, Textiles, Print and Collage. By carefully mapping out the sequence of knowledge of great artists, skills, and the threads of art forms, pupils at Nonsuch gain a depth of knowledge and a range of skills throughout their primary experience.
We are pleased to be working towards achieving the Arts Mark. The topic is called Me: the Artist and Maker and will focus on textiles with an element of printing. The work will tie in with what the eco-warriors already do and will focus on skills progression for both children and staff.
