Art & Design Technology

Art & Design Technology at Fordbridge


At Fordbridge we view art as something that every child should be given the opportunity to enjoy. We strongly believe that art plays an integral part in children’s social, moral and cultural development. We want to create a school of budding artists where the pupils of Fordbridge feel proud of their art work. We will do this by teaching Art in fun and creative ways, to ensure children are always engaged with the topic. We teach key artistic skills that the children can practice throughout their time at school.

 

Our art curriculum focuses on artists such as Vincent Van Gough, Gustav Klimt, George Seurat and Julian Opie. Each year group will be given a focus artist and will use a piece of their work as a mentor piece to examine the techniques of and recreate in the style of. By studying particular artists and their styles, the children will develop an exciting and diverse range of artistic skills. They will be given the opportunity to work with a wide selection of mediums including but not limited to; pencils, clay, pastels and a range of paints. All pupils are provided with an art book to showcase their work and show the progression of their taught skills.

 

Art and DT are both taught in the form of focused days, where children can really delve into their art and DT work.

 

In DT we will enable children to examine, design, make and evaluate their work in a thrilling and engaging way. Children will develop their knowledge and skills of construction, mechanism, food technology and textiles. They will work on a wide variety of design projects using a variety of materials. They will produce things such as moving vehicles, buildings and healthy snacks which teach skills as well as working carefully and safely.
