We aim to develop confident explorers of skills and ideas, reflective thinkers, and ambitious adventurers into new experiences. Pupils relish the opportunity to explore and learn new skills in Art and Design Technology, and their achievements are celebrated throughout the Royal Russell School.
Our engaging and varied Art curriculum introduces pupils to inspirational artist, craft makers, designers and architects, and provides pupils with the opportunity to explore a wide range of materials and artistic mediums including drawing, painting and sculpture. Pupils learn to use colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space, alongside advancing their critical thinking skills. Every pupil is encouraged to develop their artistic skills and ideas to their fullest potential.
Our Design Technology curriculum challenges pupils to design and make products in response to a range of briefs. Pupils are encouraged to investigate existing products and materials, develop their designing and making skills alongside their technical knowledge, and evaluate their finished product. In Design Technology pupils also apply their learning about food hygiene and nutrition while developing cooking skills.
Additional Art and Design Technology opportunities enhance the curriculums each academic year, such as trips to art galleries, artist/designer workshops, collaborative projects with the Senior School, art clubs, and art competitions.
Pupil’s artworks are exhibited around the school through displays and pop-up exhibitions, filling the school with creativity and self-expression and proudly celebrating the pupils’ achievements throughout the year.
Our teachers teach classes designed to develop creativity using a variety of media and techniques in arts and crafts. The awareness of colour, shape, balance, focus, and proportion are formed together to convey ideas and feelings.
During art classes, your child will be introduced to basic artistic skills and will be offered every opportunity to grow as young artist. The art curriculum is designed to strengthen a child’s knowledge of art, as well as his or her artistic abilities and interests.
