Art and Design
The aim of Art and Design at St Anne's is to develop creativity whilst engaging, inspiring and challenging our pupils, giving them the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create. In doing so, allowing the children to think critically, gain an understanding of art and design and reflect on how it shapes our history and contributes to the culture, creativity and wealth of the nation.
At St Anne's, we celebrate the uniqueness of all our children, by giving them the opportunities to explore their ideas; experimenting, inventing and creating their own works using a range of materials. Building and embedding a variety of skills and techniques; nurturing knowledge for lifelong learning and achievement.
