A Warmingham Artist
A Caring Christian Family Where We Grow Together
Let Your Light Shine ~ Matthew 5:16
As Warmingham Artists, we 'Let our lights shine' by becoming enthusiastic, curious, indpendent thinkers. Motivated, reflective and resilient learners.
Art has a high profile in our school here at Warmingham. Our commitment allows children with a huge range of abilities and needs to connect creatively and emotionally, in turn supporting them to progress both personally and academically. At Warmingham, we encourage and celebrate a love of Art, there are no boundaries. In line with the Church of England's role, we aim to contribute to the common good of the whole community. We are dedicated to expanding learning into the community to involve, include and fully appreciate the world around us.
Our pupils engage with Art through immersing them with relevant, fun and meaningful high-quality experiences across the whole of the curriculum. This full understanding enables them to become experts in their subject and allow them to creatively explore new ideas and bring the topic to life. Art is explored using a variety of media, where children can investigate new and alternative techniques and styles from a range of artists. Sketch books are incorporated in key stage two to record experiences and imagination so that pupils have space to develop ideas and demonstrate how their artistic ability has progressed.
Pupils are also encouraged to identify different kinds of art through the work of artists, craftspeople, and designers in both contemporary life and in different times and cultures.
An aesthetically pleasing environment for learning encourages children to value their own work and the work of others; display around school is therefore an important feature.
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 to communicate through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes. They explore ideas and meanings through the work of artists and designers who have had an impact on contemporary life and on different periods and cultures.
