Art & Design

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up”                                                                                                               

Pablo Picasso

Art & Design

 We aim to promote the arts in all its forms. The teaching of Art and Design is aimed at stimulating children’s creativity and imagination. Children are taught to:

  • Explore and develop ideas 
  • Combine materials, tools and techniques to achieve effects
  • Review their own and others’ work, saying what they think and feel about it
  • Combine colour, patterns and texture, line and tone, shape, form and space
  • Investigate the roles and purposes of artists, craftspeople and designers in different times and cultures.
  • Children have the opportunity to work with a range of media and explore a variety of starting points for their work.
