Art and Design Glossary

As a school, we feel it is important for children to be aware of significant artists and artworks. As well as art lessons, children are also taught about an ‘artwork of the week’. Children look at where the look at the work of art and talk about how it is composed and how it makes them feel, and also learn about the artist who created it.

Artwork of the Week

Across the school year, children focus on an 'artwork of the week' every fortnight. The artists studied cover a rnage of styles, mediums and time periods and are designed to show children the wide world of art that is out there. The artists and artworks covered are listed below, and a link to the artist's/museum's wesbite is included where possible.
