Art, Craft and Design

Art, craft and design is taught throughout the school, either as part of a topic or as a skills based lesson. A range of artists are studied and the children are encouraged to express their opinion about different artworks.

Children are given the opportunity to learn new skills and techniques and to express their ideas in a variety of mediums.  They will produce creative work, explore their ideas and record their experiences.
