In Art at Michaela, pupils are taught the traditional techniques of drawing and Art History. Teachers show pupils exactly how to use each media in depth step-by-step, using the visualizer. Pupils are given time to develop into skilful artists so that when they progress into KS4/5 they are able to demonstrate their ideas and solve their personal creative problems using highly informed and high quality outcomes.
Unlike in many schools where students only learn the name of movements, artists and if they’re lucky some keywords and dates, Michaela pupils are taught Art History as a subject within itself. Our pupils are able to appreciate and discuss artworks confidently having the knowledge and understanding of the history of it. They learn how meaning is communicated in images and artefacts through exploring Art History which is embedded within the curriculum, so that children can visit Art galleries and speak knowledgeably about what they see with confidence.
