Art @ Denbigh CPS

Subject Lead: Miss Clarke

We strongly believe in the importance of art in developing our children. As a result of our passion and commitment to Art, we are currently a Gold Standard Artsmark school. At Denbigh is taught in several ways.  We teach art through designated art weeks which are undertaken termly.  Staff teach children a range of skills based on different strands of Art each term.  The skills are progressive across the age range of the children.

In Foundation Stage learning objectives are taken from the Early Years Outcomes, usually from the strand of Expressive Arts and Design.  Staff use the objectives they feel the children will need to cover to develop their key skills until they reach the Early Learning Goal.  This is done through continuous provision and through targeted teaching based around a theme or topic.

In KS1 and KS2 staff allocate objectives across the year, using appropriate curriculum coverage based on need and key skills and then make tasks to fit to support the topic

At Denbigh we use a variety of teaching and learning styles in order to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding.

All teaching ensures full coverage of the themes of colour, texture, tone, form, space, line, shape and pattern.  We provide children with opportunities to experiment with and explore a wide range of media and tools in order to make discoveries for themselves. We provide guidance through specific teaching of a range of techniques and use of tools as is appropriate to the stage of development and individual needs.

We are super proud of our final perspective artwork. They all look amazing! #dcpsdolphin #dcpsart ... See MoreSee Less

Here are some of our finished abstract pieces inspired by the surrealist work of Kandinsky and Miro.

Year 3 are using the work of artists, Joan Miro and Wassily Kandinsky to inspire their artwork this week. We looked at realist and surrealist paintings and concentrated on the use of line in those paintings. We also looked at how colour choices affect the mood of a painting.
Miro likes to use eyes in his abstract, so yesterday we looked at using line for contour and texture then had a go at drawing our own eye. This morning, we are using half of Kandinsky painting and using his technique of listening for shapes and colours in classical music to build the missing half.
We will be using all of our skills to create our final piece. Stay tuned for our masterpieces.

The classroom became an art gallery this afternoon. We looked at each other’s colour landscapes, created earlier this week, and gave positive feedback about our creations. #dcpsdragons #dcpsart ... See MoreSee Less

Year 5 Dolphins have been learning about perspective drawings using lines. Over the past few days, we have been building up our sketching skills ready for our final piece of artwork. We have learned how to create vanishing points and construction lines to help us create depth and distance. It has been tricky at times but the results have been excellent so far! #dcpsdolphin #dcpsart ... See MoreSee Less

Year 5 Whales are doing amazing perspective drawings this week. Their skills work is amazing! I can’t wait to see their final pictures by the end of the week. #dcpswhales #dcpsart ... See MoreSee Less

Today the Dinos have been incorporating colour as well as the line drawing techniques they have learned into creating landscapes. They look amazing.

We are looking at line in art week this week. The dinos have been looking at line drawings by Vincent Van Gogh, thinking about his use of line and what they could see in three of his paintings. We then looked at and practiced different line drawing techniques, including using different grades of pencil to achieve different effects. We rounded up the day by using a viewfinder to focus on one particular area of a piece of artwork before recreating it using the techniques we had practiced today. Tomorrow we will look at landscapes and incorporating colour into our work.
