Art and Design/Design and Technology

Here at St. Johns we are lucky enough to have our own purpose built Art and Design studio. We encourage children to explore their creative talents through regular use of the studio, in class, Art and Design projects and during our after school Art club. Pupils are given the opportunity to work with traditional and new media, to engage with and explore visual, tangible and additional sensory practices and learn ways in which to convey their own ideas and meanings. We believe it to be very important that all children have the opportunity to develop their skills in all areas of the curriculum, with Art and Design Technology being a great way to promote individuality, curiosity, confidence and imagination. Where possible we encourage the teaching of cross curricular Art and Design Technology to make learning exciting and stimulating.
