Art & Design
At St Catherine of Siena, we want our art and design curriculum to stimulate creativity and imagination. We hope to provide visual, tactile and sensory experiences, and a special way of understanding and responding to the world, enabling children to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes. We want children to become involved in shaping their environments through art and design activities, to learn to make informed judgements, aesthetic and practical decisions and explore ideas and meanings through the work of artists and designers. We believe that the appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts enrich all our lives, and that our creativity is irretrievably linked to our spirituality.
