Art and Design
Art and design stimulates creativity and imagination.
Art provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences, and a special way of understanding and responding to the world. It enables our children to communicate what they see, feel and think, through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes.
We thrive on our children becoming involved in shaping their environments through art and design activities. We want them to
learn to make informed judgements, and aesthetic and practical decisions. Through learning about the roles and functions of art, they can explore the impact it has had on contemporary life and on different periods and cultures.
The appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts enriches all our lives.
