Visual Art Intent Statement
KS3 at Abbey Park school is about encouraging experimentation, resilience and openness to ideas.
Projects are skilled based and revisited to instil confidence, with a range of materials.
We visit drawing in every year group building on quality. Projects become more thematic as the years progress, ideas exploring peace in year 8, a Lions Club Competition. Our students have won national photography competitions.
Distraction and how isolated society have become. In year 9 we explore consumerism and how this impact on the whole world, how we are a connected world.
Students make sculptures of Gargoyles, trainers and pinch pot monster.
We make stencil art, press prints, collage work. Students are exposed to many artists and intentions, fuelling their own inquisitiveness and concerns.
KS4 we explore themes of identity and environmental concerns, in both art and photography.
Students go on trips to London Galleries, Bath and Lacock, our students are exposed to Artists and intentions. We believe in creating an emotionally intelligent and passionate student who engages and filters the world around.
The department has specialists in graphics/ photography and fine art, and we all love inspiring the students and society of tomorrow.
