  •  Explore the materials and processes used in the production of art
  • Identify the formal and stylistic elements of paintings and sculpture from different historical periods
  • Use key art terminology and build a descriptive vocabulary while considering the varying contexts in which art works are made and seen
  • Analyse and interpret formal visual features and stylistic elements
