Introduction to Art at Harris Academy Morden

In Art at Harris Academy Morden, a high-quality art and design education is in place to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress in Art at Harris Academy Morden, they develop their ability to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They also develop their knowledge of how art and design both reflects and shapes our history, and contributes to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

In Art at Harris Academy Morden, students are taught to develop their creativity and ideas and increase proficiency in their execution. They also develop a critical understanding of artists, architects and designers, expressing reasoned judgements that can inform their own work. For example, in year 8 students produce work based on the ‘day of the dead’, enabling development of the formal elements, informed by the cultural context of the festival.

The chronological overview through Key Stage 3 and 4 enables students to be taught to develop their creativity and ideas and increase proficiency in their execution. They develop a critical understanding of artists, architects and designers, expressing reasoned judgements that informs their own work.
