ART

Vision Statement

At Weatherfield Academy, we aim to ensure that all pupils can explore their ideas and record their experiences through Art.

 

We aim for pupils to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.

We encourage pupils to evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design. They will study great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

Art at Weatherfield Academy

In Key Stages 2 and 3, the Art curriculum is linked to the creative curriculum themes that are taught across all subjects. It is a practical course, allowing the students plenty of opportunities to try out, learn, explore and develop their artistic skills.

 

In Key Stages 4 and 5, pupils work on the AQA Unit Award Scheme. Students are expected to create their own individualised art work. We encourage them reflect on their work, and the work of others, in order to establish how improvements can be made. Alongside the practical aspects, we research the works of famous artists and create artwork in their style.

Qualifications

AQA accreditation awards.

Other Information

Pupils’ work is displayed around the school, providing a bright and inspiring school environment. Seasonal and celebratory items are displayed, and pupils have an active role in preparing the school for our Christmas, Harvest and Easter festivities.
