Spring - The Arts

We will begin to look at some of the worlds most well recognised art works and artists focusing in  particular on:

  • British artists.
  • British art and what it tells us about our history.
  • The art of the Egyptians

We will also explore the work of local artists across history and discover how their work has influenced Ulveston and the surrounding area.

We will use our learning around art to look at British history from revisiting Stone age cave paintings and carved stones, through to  some of the big art movements of Impressionism, surrealism and abstracts that moved across Britain. (such as the 1860-1910 arts and crafts movement)

Alongside this we will also look at art in ancient civilisations, and focus on the life and culture of the ancient Egyptians and Ancient Greeks and how their civilisations differed to each other, and modern day.

We will also explore the development of music and dance throughout history by studying the types of musical instruments in some of the time periods we study.
