Our Art Intent
At Two Mile Ash School we believe that children should be able to express themselves creatively, by using a range of materials to create art in a variety of forms and effectively make use of art in their everyday lives.
Our Art curriculum, ensures the progressive development of knowledge and skills, whilst using as rich vocabulary to help children develop ideas, master techniques and take inspiration from the greats. Our children gain experience and skills of a wide range of formal elements of art in a way that will enhance their learning opportunities, enabling them to use art creativity in a range of subjects across the curriculum. Extending their creative experience through inspiration days, collaborative whole school projects such as Take One Picture and linking art to mindfulness. As children move through the school, they are provided with opportunities to be critical of art and develop an understanding of how art both reflects and shapes our history.
Through our art curriculum, children are exposed to a variety of local arts through dance, drama and musical opportunities that Milton Keynes offers. Our Two Mile Ash arts offer, will contribute to children’s personal development in creativity, independence, judgement and self-reflection. This would be seen in them being able to talk confidently about their work while also confidently sharing their work and journey with others.
