Art and Design

The children develop their creativity and imagination by exploring the visual, tactile and sensory qualities of materials and processes. Opportunities are given to develop and explore a range of creative skills and artistic techniques through drawing, painting, printing, collage, and two and three-dimensional work. They begin to understand colour, shape, space, pattern and texture and use them to represent their ideas and feelings. The children are introduced to the work of different artists and encouraged to evaluate this, developing their knowledge and understanding and a sense of art appreciation.
