At St. Patrick's we value learning and teaching Art and Design because it stimulates creativity and promotes imagination through the use of a wide range of materials. It is also very effective as a cross-curricular link, adding to children's experiences and depth of understanding in other areas of their learning, from creating their own artwork, sculptures and artefacts to enjoying the experiences of theatre, museum and gallery trips. Art provides a stimulating learning environment where the pupil's voice is paramount and each piece of artwork is valued and celebrated individually and collectively as a community. It is essential that children have the opportunity to learn and enjoy Art and Design from an early age to enrich their lives, develop creativity and inspire future careers in the arts.
