Art and Design engages, inspires and challenges children, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Children learn to express themselves using a variety of media. They paint, draw, construct models, do collage work and pottery. They also develop skills in close observational drawing. We encourage them to take pride in their work and to aim for high standards in presentation. Using artists in residence, pictures and artefacts, children develop an understanding of the work of artists and crafts people and apply that knowledge to their work.
