Art & Design 

 Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. 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. 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.

Autumn 1 CLASP project -Year 4 

This term we have been looking at how to create surface pattern inspired by juicy fruits.

First the children explored different materials using chalk pastels, watercolours, graded pencils and coloured pencils. They then created different observational studies using first hand and secondary resources. We enjoyed filling the room with the scents of sliced lemons and oranges during our first drawing session too.

Finally, the children took pictures of their work using the iPad and created digital designs using 'pic collage' to duplicate inventive patterns. 

Once their final design was chosen it was transferred onto a canvas tote bag using our schools heat press.
