Art and Design


Art and Design provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and is a unique way of understanding and responding to the world. Children use colour, form, texture, pattern, different materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think. They explore ideas and meaning in the work of artists as well as learning how to understand, appreciate and enjoy art. Visits are made by artists to provide first hand experiences. Each year the academy has an Arts Week when each child completes a piece of artwork for display in a school exhibition.
