ART & DESIGN
At St Marys we value the creativity developed in our children through Art, Craft and Design. We aim to equip each child with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own art work and also to enjoy the work of famous artists and designers throughout history and to appreciate the beauty of the natural world.
Art is taught as a distinct subject and also enhances other subjects across the curriculum.
We have an Arts Week with visiting artists and crafts people working with the children. We also welcome opportunities to take children to visit local Art Galleries. We enjoy close links with local secondary schools which enables our children to work with specialist art teachers and older pupils and for our teachers to further develop their creative skills.
