Art & Design

Art & Design

At St. Joseph The Worker we stronly believe that that all children, whatever their background and abilitywill have access to a varied range of high quality art experiences to provide an imaginative, innovative and co-ordinated art programme which will foster enthusiasm for art and design amongst all the children.

We endeavour to provide a broad arts provision through a programme of visits to galleries to enable children to record from first-hand experience and from imagination, and to select their own ideas to use in their work;

• to improve the children’s ability to control materials, tools and techniques;

• to increase their critical awareness of the roles and purposes of art and design in different times and cultures;

• to develop increasing confidence in the use of visual and tactile elements and materials;

• to foster an enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts and a knowledge of artists, craftspeople and designers, through links with the local and wider multicultural community.
