Art provides children with the opportunity to express themselves imaginatively and creatively, in a way that is unique to us all. It contributes to the development of the whole child emotionally, socially and cognitively.
At Dollis, children are encouraged and taught to become visual and emotional thinkers through drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, drama and music. The arts are clearly embedded in our creative curriculum. This enables children to learn the part that the Arts plays in the lives of others, in History and different cultures, and how it contributes to the creativity of our world.
Our Art curriculum engages, inspires and challenges pupils, equipping them with knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. This is evident throughout the walls in our school.
Art fosters a sense of personal achievement. Everyone can achieve in the Arts at Dollis. These skills provide access to other areas of the curriculum and help develop motor skills, language development and decision-making. The acquisition of good basic Art skills will encourage your child to use their imagination in ways that will enrich their whole lives for now and the future.
