Art and design stimulates children’s creativity and imagination. Children use colour, pattern, form, and texture to communicate what they see, feel and think. They explore different artists and learn about the diverse roles and functions of art in different times and cultures.

In art and design lessons children have the opportunity both to work on their own and to collaborate with others, listening to other children’s ideas and treating these with respect. Children work on projects in two and three dimensions and on different scales. They have the opportunity to use a wide range of materials and resources, including ICT.
