Art & Design

Our Art PPA cover is a fantastic way for your children to be creative and have fun. We use a cross curricular approach to support learning in other subjects. Our art sessions are taught by teachers with experience as professional artists who have a passion for sharing their skills with the next generation. Our sessions are planned so that schools meet the National Curriculum objectives for art and design. At Fresh Arts Education we know that art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity.

At Fresh Arts Education we believe that a high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. We support your school in achieving the National Curriculum objectives for art. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation

Key Stages (1 and 2)

Fresh Arts Educations’ Key Stage 1 programmes support the national curriculum by teaching children to:

  • use a range of materials creatively to design and make products.
  • use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination.
  • develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space.
  • learn about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.

Fresh Arts Educations Key Stage 2 programmes support the national curriculum by teaching children to:

  • Develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.
  • To create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas to improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay]
