In Art & Design at Hill Avenue, children will be able to build on their own experiences using a variety of media and tools to develop new skills. Through the teaching of art, children will become aware of the role it plays in the community and different cultures. They will be encouraged to develop both their ability to respond critically to works of art, and confidence in their own artistic ability.
We believe that Art and Design stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a unique way of understanding and responding to the world.
Pupils use colour, form, texture, pattern and different materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think. They explore ideas and meanings in the work of artists, crafts people and designers. They learn about the diverse roles and functions of art, craft and design in contemporary life, and in different times and cultures.
