Arts and Design

 

Art and design stimulates creativity and imagination. It engages, inspires and challenges the learner and through a wide range of stimulating experiences, new ideas and personal responses will be made.

It provides visual, tactile and sensory learning and a unique way of understanding and responding to the world. It offers the opportunity to communicate personally what they see, feel and think.

Art and design activities help learners to make informed value judgement and aesthetic and practical decisions. A relentless questioning of what they see will help them think critically and through imaginative response, foster their creativity.

Understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts have the power to enrich their lives.

At Hill View Primary school, we value the arts highly and seek to give a broad range of art and craft experiences across the range of art disciplines.
