Exodus 35:30-33 ‘The Lord chose Bezalel and filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills – to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood and to engage in all kinds of artistic crafts.
Students are encouraged to develop their skills and knowledge across a range of different disciplines and media, promoting personalised outcomes students will develop a range of skills in a broad range of media, focus on the use of colour, mark making and printmaking and will develop the use of a sketchbook. Our curriculum fosters confidence, creativity and individual skills students will develop their painting and drawing skills, work in three dimensions, learn about work in mixed media and learn new photography techniques. The curriculum allows students to realise that true creativity is grounded in perseverance and challenges are overcome6.
Through the curriculum students will nurture academic habits to develop their ability to analyse the work of artists, through study of art history and relevant social context. Students will stretch themselves spiritually, morally and imaginatively through creative investigations, showing character when designing and encouraging exploration through experimentation. Our curriculum allows children to embrace your mistakes as development and persevere towards your final outcome.
We provide a foundation for students to pursue their hopes and aspirations through further education on their own creative journey. Our curriculum explores different pathways in the creative industry and have high aspirations9.
