How will my child progress in their knowledge, skill and understanding in Art?


Progression of Knowledge, Skills and Understanding (KSU): Art


Through IPC Art tasks, learners will know about a variety of artworks and/or artists from first-hand experiences and other sources, representing a variety of styles and created using a broad range of materials/media.


With reference to skills, learners will be able to manipulate a range of materials/resources including (but not limited to): wood, metal, plastic, paper, yarn, clay, fabric, paint, crayon, pastel, charcoal, ink, computer programs and recycled and natural found materials to create visual art. They will be able to view objects of art and use their observation skills to evaluate, create or recreate.


Learners will develop an understanding of the reasons for the creation of art, sources of inspiration and how the creative process works for different artists. Learners will also develop an understanding of the difference between copying, being influenced by, and being inspired by other artists or art works.


The Learning Goals in Art can be identified as Knowledge (Know), Skills (Be able to) and Understanding (Understand).
