Art gives students opportunities to be creative, expressive, and to take the journey of self-discovery. It also provides a valuable sense of achievement. Students explore working individually and in groups, learning practical skills that contribute to development in hand/eye coordination and physical dexterity. They also develop symbolic understanding as well as reinforcing Literacy and Maths skills. The art department provides a creative and safe environment for students to learn and explore ideas and to develop, make and evaluate. We expect students to continue to develop their skills acting on advice, achieving their full potential. We provide opportunities in and out of the class room with enriching experiences such as gallery visits, creating the stage set for our much acclaimed theatre productions, making large lanterns for the Light parade and working closely with the TLCP. Our approach in the art department is fun yet hard working.
