At The Highway Primary School, we recognise that Art and Design stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the world. It enables all children to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes.
We encourage children to explore ideas and meanings through the work of a diverse range of artists and designers. Through learning about the roles and functions of art, they can explore the impact it has had on contemporary life. Children should know art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our diverse nation. We believe the appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts enriches all our lives.
