The creative act is fundamental in providing an opportunity for children to connect with their innate creativity whilst having fun! During the term students will explore a range of techniques/materials focusing on building foundational skills whilst harnessing their own unique creative expression. Watercolour, ink, pencil, charcoal, clay and pastels will be among the materials used to build unique compositions. We will weave into our work the seasons, nature, dreams and story as we draw inspiration from life & imagination.
