Purpose of study: Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. 

Pop Art in Year 4

After learning about the features of Pop Art, its significant figures and their work; we completed our self-portraits inspired by this movement. The children's work reflected their knowledge of the composition, techniques and key ideas of this artistic movement and enabled them to create their fantastic, original pieces. 

Our final Pop Art lesson in Year 4 was a great success! We were inspired by Andy Warhol's 'popular' images and focused on creating a personalised 'pop' effect. We used a variety of techniques and skills. Children thoroughly enjoyed sharing their amazing masterpieces with their proud teachers and peers.
