“Every man is an artist.” Joseph Beuys
Here at Low Ash we believe an art education is essential to create a well- rounded, well prepared learner . We hope to develop and foster valuable life skills that can be easily transferred to other subjects, boost overall academic achievement, enhance well-being/ self-esteem and lead to better future work opportunities. By exploring ideas and recording their experiences, we hope to develop proficiency in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques. We want to promote creative problem solving skills, fine and gross motor skills, language skills, socials skills, decision making, risk-taking and encourage inventiveness.
By teaching how to evaluate and analyse creative works, we aim for children to know about great artists, craft makers and designers. This in turn will deepen their understanding of aesthetic judgement relating to artistic ideas.
