‘Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else’
Sydney Gurewitz Clemens.
Art and Design is a vital part of the primary curriculum as it provides a means of expressing oneself for each child. It is a practical subject which stimulates creativity, personal expression, a sense of well-being and imagination through the use of a wide range of materials and techniques, whilst the children develop their own visual literacy in the wider historical and current contexts of artists, designers and craft makers.
Art and Design at Dringhouses plays an important part in each child’s development. The art and design curriculum develops the key skills of creative thinking and problem solving, communication, working with others and improving their own learning and performance. The subject is effective as a cross-curricular link, adding to children’s depth of understanding, appreciation of and experiences in other areas of their learning including spiritual and cultural awareness.
The quality of teaching and learning in art is of high quality across the school.
