At Ashfield Primary, 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 children of all abilities to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes. Being creative, can be therapeutic and promotes a sense of well being. The appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts enriches all our lives.

We encourage children to explore ideas and meanings through the work of a range of artists and designers. Through learning about the roles and function of art, they can explore the impact it has had on contemporary life and that of different times and cultures.
