Art and Design

Mrs Ryan

"Art and Design enriches our children’s learning. It stimulates and nurtures creativity, imagination and inventiveness. Children are equipped with knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. They have the opportunity to observe, investigate, and respond to the world around them through experimenting with their ideas, the use of colour, texture, form, pattern, different materials and processes, and so develop their skill base in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques. The pupils of St Anne’s develop and grow an understanding and respect of the work of artists, crafts people and designers and apply this knowledge to their own work. In talking about art and evaluating their own and others’ work, pupils are encouraged to develop their visual language, ideas and feelings. Sketchbooks are utilised to explore and practise ideas, experience and imagination and so reflect children’s journey and progress. Above all, children are encouraged to develop a sense of enjoyment and pride in their ability to create." 
“Art is not just a subject to learn, but an activity that you can practise with your hands, your eyes, your whole personality.” Quentin Blake, Children’s Laureate
