Art & Design

Generating Ideas: The starting point for the project will be the painting The Starry Night. The children will learn about Vincent van Gogh and his work they will use their imaginations to develop the original painting into a work of their own. Have the opportunity to communicate their ideas using a variety of methods, including drawing and making models.

Art and Design Making/Technique: Explore different methods and materials as ideas develop. Draw lines of different sizes and thickness. Colour neatly following the lines. Use thick and thin brushes. Mix primary colours to make secondary. Add white to colours to make tints and dark toned colours to lighter colours to make tones.

Design and Technology Making/Technique: develop ideas by shaping materials and putting together components. Plan by suggesting what to do next as their ideas develop, select tools, techniques and materials for making their product from a range suggested by the teacher, explore the sensory qualities of materials, measure, mark out, cut and shape a range of materials, assemble, join and combine materials and components and use simple finishing techniques to improve the appearance of their product, using a range of equipment.


Knowledge: the children will learn about the artist Vincent van Gogh and about the type of paintings he created. They will learn about the toy used in Victorian times and that it is creating an optical illusion.


Evaluation: Have the opportunity to reflect upon their own work, and use comparisons with the work of others (pupils and artists) to identify how to improve.
