"I found I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn't say in any other way - things I had no words for." Georgia O'Keefe

Art at Uplands

Each term teachers inspire the children to explore and extend their skills including drawing, painting, printing, collage and sculpture. Children learn about a range of artists, designers, art movements and styles across time and cultures. Sketchbooks are used across the school to explore and investigate ideas, media and techniques to develop observational drawings and representations. Children also study an artist in depth and use their observations and understanding to inspire their own work. Take a look below at some of the artists we study.

Our Art Curriculum

We have carefully mapped out the key knowledge and vocabulary that we want to ensure each child retains from the units of work they cover across their time at Uplands School. These key points of learning will lead into the end of unit outcome that we have also mapped out in the document below.
