A flourishing artist at the Ridge Junior School is able to convey their originality, creativity and self-expression through art.
The school commits to explicitly teaching a range of artistic techniques. By using an assortment of media the children master different skills and are able to select, use and inventively combine materials and processes to present and create imaginative pieces of art work that is not a pastiche or parody of others but their own work.
Pupils confidently reflect upon, analyse and critically evaluate their own work and those of others and through their skilful use of visual and technical language, they communicate their thoughts, feelings and emotions to a wide range of audiences in different settings.
Through focusing on carefully chosen topics, artists, craft makers and designers the children have an understanding of how art and design both impact on contemporary life and reflect upon and shape our history, contributing to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
