Art & Design

Art is about developing children’s creative ability using a wide range of media and materials. Children will experience drawing, painting, printing, collage, and 3-dimensional work, as well as being introduced to the rich culture of art by looking at the work of other artists. Within these areas children will be introduced to the elements of art such as colour and tone, line, pattern and texture, shape, form and space. Art is intended to be enjoyable and all efforts valued.

As the children develop their skills an emphasis is placed on the quality of presentation and we encourage pride and achievement by displaying children’s work around the school.
