Art at Chad Vale
All children need a meaningful context, a clear purpose and concrete sensory experience in order to learn and progress in art and design. Art and design is not only a visual experience. Contemporary art often combines media in multi-sensory works such as installations. These use the viewer’s sense of touch, hearing and movement through space, as well as sight. By extending teaching and learning in art and design to include all the senses, teachers can provide for the variety of thinking skills and learning styles that will include all learners.
Children will learn to develop techniques in drawing, painting and other media and be encouraged to express themselves through creativity. We put an emphasis on understanding the cultural, historical and popular impact of artists and designers (both male and female) in the UK and abroad.
