Through Art & Design, the children of Northbrook Primary Academy are provided with visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a unique way of understanding and responding to the world. Art is a valuable part of our curriculum, giving children an opportunity to present their personality and view of the world through observation, experimentation and illustration. Children are encouraged to express their creativity through a wide variety of media throughout their time at school.
Art and Design assists in building self-awareness, self-esteem and imagination. Children become involved in shaping their environments through art and design lessons where they are able to explore ideas and meanings through the work of a wide range of artists, designers, sculptors and architects. Through learning about the roles and functions of art, they can explore the impact it has had on contemporary life and on different periods and cultures.
