Our Learning as Artists and Designers
Art has an important place in our curriculum. We see art as a vehicle for creativity and individual expression and it provides opportunities for collaborative work. It is an important form of cultural expression and, therefore, has significance and meaning for all our children. Our teaching provides an understanding of different art forms so that the children experience drawing, painting, collage, textiles, 3D designs, printmaking and digital media.
Our design and technology lessons encourage the designing and making of products to solve real and relevant problems. Our children learn to select from and use a wide range of materials and components, including construction materials, textiles and ingredients, according to their characteristics.
