We aim to promote enjoyment in all art activities, encourage the natural artistic abilities that every child possesses and, in the process, help children communicate confidently and expressively.

We teach children to look carefully at images and artefacts from the past and present as well as other cultures. We develop skills and knowledge of materials so that ideas can be generated, undertaken and completed with success.
