Art at CAW
At CAW, we teach 3 different art skills a year including sketching, sculpting weaving and printing. We understand that art is a skill that can be developed like any other, so we use the following process to ensure children make progress in their designated art skill.
We use a cold task to assess any existing experience the children have with the chosen art skill. We then break the art skill down into smaller technique e.g. in order to sculpt effectively I need to be able to knead. Once we understand these smaller techniques, we evaluate our ability in each technique. We spend time practising these techniques to improve our overall art skill. This
