This part of the course will explore the rise of the human artistic consciousness. Students will be encouraged to think about why a particular development took place and the impact that it had going forward. The last session of term will be a family session, including a mini review of the discoveries made by the children.
The Renaissance period from its origins, and its lasting influence on Western society. Your child will learn about the rise of humanism, the birth of long distance travel, and the numerous changing social and political landscapes during this era - all of which are chronicled in the artworks.
Here we will be studying modern art, with all its limitless possibilities, influences and controversies. Students will learn that artistic energy is a constant flow between times, cultures and ideas. Art cannot exist in isolation: it requires both a creator and an observer. Your child will step into the role of the observer and, whilst learning about the circumstances surrounding the artwork, they will also come to learn a lot about themselves.
