EYFS

Expressive Art and Design Development Matters

Examples:

3-4 year olds will learn to:

Take part in simple pretend play, using an object to represent something else even thought they are not similar.

Use natural resources to represent common items the children are familiar with in the home.

Make imaginative and complex small worlds with blocks and constructions kits.

Provide lots of flexible and open ended resources for imaginative play

Explore different materials freely, in order to develop their ideas about how to use them and what to make.

Explore on different scales and surfaces large and small, natural and manmade

Develop their own ideas and then decide which materials to use to express them.

Listen, understand and support the development of their ideas

Join different materials and explore different textures.

Use crafts people and artists as role models and offer a range of ideas for children to draw on.

Create closed shapes with continuous lines and begin to use these shapes to represent objects.

Develop drawing and model making opportunities and encourage own creative ideas and talk about meaning and purpose of their creations.

Draw with increasing complexity and detail such as representing a face with a circle and including details.

Encourage to draw from imagination and observation.

Use drawing to represent ideas like movement or loud noises

Help children to add details to their drawings, select interesting objects to draw, pointing out key features.

Show different emotions in their drawings and paintings like happiness, sadness, fear etc

Talk about different colours and how to mix them to create new colours.

Explore colour and colour mixing

Look at the work of artists across times and cultures. Notice similarities and differences between their own work and that of others, focusing on colour, line, movement,  etc.

Reception children will learn to:

Explore, use and refine a variety of artistic effects to express their ideas and feelings.

Develop colour missing techniques to enable them to match the colours they seen and want to represent.

Return to and build on their previous learning, refining ideas and developing their ability to represent them.

Provide opportunities to work together to develop and realise creative ideas.

Create collaboratively, sharing ideas, resources and skills.

Use a variety of materials to construct with, discuss what they want to make and what problems they might face as well as solutions.

Help them to reflect on their original aim.

Model different joining techniques and how to use different joining resources and tools.

Notice features in the natural world.

Define colours, shapes, texture and smells in their own words as part of discussions.

Be inspired by the work of others

Visit galleries and museums to generate inspiration and conversation about art and artists.
