Art and Design

Art & Design at Bishop's Waltham Junior

Children at BWJS are given opportunities to engage in an immersive art and design curriculum which has been designed to enable them to explore their ideas, record their experiences and produce creative work.

During their time at BWJS, children are taught to progressively become more proficient at drawing, painting, sculpture and other art techniques such as clay work and printing.

Pupils are also taught about great artists and designers so that they can gain an understanding of the historical and cultural development of the art forms in which they are learning.

The curriculum overview for art and design can be read below. Many of the projects directly link in with the Topics studied in each year-group; others study a specific art movement or influence.  Within this link, you can discover the outcomes for each unit, and can view some examples children’s work.
