Location – MUSEUM & ART GALLERY
Pupils will be introduced to alternative ways of experiencing art through activities that encourage active participation such as ‘performing’ artworks as a human orchestra. The activities, which take place in the renowned Joseph Wright gallery, are designed to enrich pupils’ interpretations of the works on display and recognise that an encounter with art is a multi-sensory experience.
MAKE AND TAKE
Each pupil will have the opportunity to try their hand at self-portraiture.
National curriculum Key Stage 2: Art and design
“As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design”.
“The National curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:
– Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
– Know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms”.
Pupils should be taught, “about great artists, architects and designers in history”.
