Art and design colour and enrich our experience of everyday surroundings, as they develop our powers of observation.
A range of topics encourage our pupils to be confident in developing their ideas and designs while learning techniques, using different materials and increasing their competence in handling tools.
Many projects involve looking at and discussing works of art or designs from different periods. In this way, they become aware not only of their own creative abilities but also of the world of artists and craftsmen. Stimulating displays in the classrooms and corridors ensure wide appreciation of their work throughout the year.
Aesthetic choices confront us at all times and we believe it's vitally important that artistic sensibilities are developed to the fullest extent, ensuring a lifelong interest and understanding of colour, form, tone and texture.
