Art

artArt is a creative skill that children instinctively use as a means of expression, to communicate ideas and feelings. The teaching of art stimulates and encourages creativity and imagination through visual, tactile and sensory experiences. It provides a unique way of understanding and responding to the world and can be used to shape our environment.

Aims:

  • To stimulate each child’s creativity and imagination;
  • To develop each child’s understanding of colour, form, texture and pattern;
  • To develop each child’s ability to use materials and processes to communicate ideas and feelings;
  • To enable each child to record from firsthand experience and from imagination;
  • To explore with each child the ideas and meanings in the work of artists, craftspeople and designers;
  • To help each child to learn about the functions of art, craft and design in their own lives and in different times and cultures;
  • To help each child to learn how to make thoughtful judgements and aesthetic and practical decisions;
  • To help each child to become actively involved in shaping environments;
  • To extend and enrich other curriculum areas through art and design.
