‘A Values School’

Art and Design

At Marston Moreteyne School we recognise that Art and Design stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the world. It enables children of all abilities to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes.

We encourage children to explore ideas and meanings through the work of a range of artists and designers. Through learning about the roles and functions of art, they can explore the impact it has had on contemporary life and that of different times and cultures. The appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts enriches all our lives.

Our Curriculum Intent Linked to Our Big Ideas

The children were fortunate enough to work with local artist Sophie Greswell. She showed them create how to create their own abstract art pieces inspired by Captain Sir Tom’s legacy, his birthday cards and their own experiences of people who helped and inspired them throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

The children were taught how to draw a face with the correct proportions and how to “mindfully” draw with their eyes closed. They also developed their skills and leant new marbling techniques too. These pieces were collaged together to create a large piece of collaborative art work for our school.
