Art and Photography
De Warenne Academy’s Art and Photography department provides our pupils with a range of different ways to express their individual creativity. It also aims to enable pupils to develop a natural sense of wonder and curiosity about the world they see around them. Through studying a diverse range of artists throughout history pupils will develop their critical thinking and cultural appreciation. Contemporary artists and google itself also provide inspiration and stimulus for pupils to aspire towards.
Pupils will develop proficiency in drawing, painting, understanding colour and shade, photography and its manipulations. They will be given opportunities to experiment, invent and create their own works of art in the styles of artists studied. Skills developed here can be transferred to many subjects and into the future; resilience, independence, analytical and reflective skills and most of all ambition.
Progression into KS4 art or photography provides more opportunities to look deeper into the culture and inspirations behind artists’ work. Analysis using key art vocabulary is included in all projects, alongside the history of the artist, and the meaning communicated within the images.
Images taken from the local area, especially Conisbrough Castle are often used, an example might be during the project “Old and Decayed”.
