Dabble Day

 

Click the links below to find out more about this year's Dabble Day:

Art at Westacre aims to instill an appreciation of beauty and an awareness of how creativity depends on 'technical mastery’, and the creation of ‘aesthetically pleasing objects’ in two and three dimensions. 

 

Children are to be taught to create and use their own sketchbooks for recording observations and reviewing ideas.

 

In KS2 children are to taught about ‘great artists, architects and designers in history’. 

 

In KS3, children develop a critical understanding of artists, architects and designers, expressing reasoned judgements that can inform their own work.
