Art Intention 

At Christ The King, our intention for the Art curriculum is to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, whilst equipping them with key knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art.

Alongside the individuals’ opportunity to express themselves, we recognise that it is essential to teach children about great artists and the works that they have created. How they have influenced history, contributed to the culture and the world we live in. Art is delivered by teachers so that it is accessible for all the children, enabling them to learn about artists and understand how the skills and knowledge they have learnt can be applied within their own learning and expression. 

 

Celebrating Black History Month at Christ The King 

 

This year, during Black History Month, Christ The King pupils celebrated the work of renowned black British artists and their remarkable lives.

 

Whilst EYFS made beautiful Gee's Bend quilt designs, inspired by a group of women and their ancestors who live or have lived in the isolated African-American hamlet of Gee's Bend, Alabama, all other year groups focused on particular artists. 

   

 Year 3 used great imagination and precision to produce their own pictures, using collage materials, inspired by Njideka Akunjili Crosby.  

 

 

                                      Year 4 produced Lois Mailou Jones-inspired 3D masks from card.
