Describe artworks, comment on colour, shape, ideas and purposes in their own and other artist’s work which begins to help inform choices for their own work.
Compare and comment on different ways of using colour and shapes used by themselves and other artists relating these to the time and purpose for which they were made, in order to explore, experiment and develop ideas for their own work.
Interpret and explain how colour, shapes and composition convey ideas and meanings with a reasoned evaluation of their own and other artist’s work. They accept creative risks in exploring and developing ideas independently for different purposes and effects.
Consider and discuss the way they and other artists arrange colour, shapes and materials, relating these to both context and purpose, accepting creative risks as they explore ideas and work independently and inventively to develop, design and make images.
Mix and apply primary and secondary colours with some control in paint, collage and other selected media to communicate ideas and meanings.
Develop practical skills by mixing and applying a range of shades and colours in paint, collage and other materials with some accuracy and control and use the qualities of media and processes to suit their intentions.
