Art and Design
At Rickleton we use a skills based approach. The children learn a range of skills that they refine and build on as they move through the school. As the children become confident with a skill, they then apply that skill to different projects, using their own ideas, imagination and individuality.
Throughout the school, children are encouraged to show off their creativity using a sketchbook style approach. The children can choose the structure and presentation of their pages.
Each project will consist of observational work, studying an artist or a new skill, then design work followed my creating something inspired by their studies. Finally, the children evaluate their own work and the work of others.
