Some of our Amazing Art Work

What does Art look like at Middlezoy and Othery Schools?

The children are always thrilled to learn that they will be working with local artist, Darrell Wakelam and this is just one of the ways we enrich the art curriculum.

Art lessons are taught termly and alternated with DT. In lessons, art is taught in a two-year cycle and the intent is that the children will be engaged, inspired and challenged. They learn the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own pieces.


Mrs Silver also runs an art club during the Autumn and early Spring terms which is very popular and always well attended. 


Throughout their time with us the children will develop the following:


  • The ability to use visual language skillfully and convincingly (for example, line, shape, pattern, colour, texture, form) to express emotions, interpret observations, convey insights and accentuate their individuality.

  • The ability to communicate fluently in visual and tactile form.

  • The ability to draw confidently and adventurously from observation, memory and imagination.

  • The ability to explore and invent marks, develop and deconstruct ideas and communicate perceptively and powerfully through purposeful drawing in 2D, 3D or digital media.

  • An impressive knowledge and understanding of other artists, craft makers and designers.

  • The ability to think and act like creative practitioners by using their knowledge and understanding to inform, inspire and interpret ideas, observations and feelings.

  • Independence, initiative and originality which they can use to develop their creativity.

  • The ability to select and use materials, processes and techniques skillfully and inventively to realise intentions and capitalise on the unexpected

  • The ability to reflect on, analyse and critically evaluate their own work and that of others.
