During art lessons the school encourages children to produce creative work, by exploring their ideas and recording their experiences. Children are given the opportunity to work with a wide variety of appropriate media in two and three dimensional form. Children are taught techniques in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art and craft design activities.
Children evaluate their own work and analyse creative works of others. The children are given the opportunity to study work of great artists, craft makers and designers and are taught how art has influenced historical and cultural development around the world.
From Years 1-6, children work in their own sketch book. These are used as working documents to record their observations, carry out artst research and use them to review and revisit ideas.
