Statement of Intent

The sequence of an art unit

Each of the stages do not reflect individual lessons. Some may only take part of a lesson, some may take more than one lesson. Each unit will be underpinned by the study of an artist or artists, or a movement in art history. Children will learn about the Art Historical aspect of the chosen artist, how to comment on works of art and use key vocabulary to describe aspects of art. Each unit will have sketching skills and drawing skills built in which progress throughout the key stages. Children will learn the skills needed for their particular medium and then plan a final composition. The finished pieces will be evaluated and displayed around the school. 

What we cover

Throughout their journey through Killinghall, children will be exposed to a range of artistic disciplines. Each key stage will build on these foundations as they progress through the school.  

Our key artists

At Killinghall, we have incorporated a diverse range of artists and medium who stretch across the globe to give children an experience of art from a wide range of cultures. Here are just a handful of some of the artists children will study throughout their time at Killinghall.
