At Devonshire Infants we are passionate about exploring the world around us and expressing our ideas creatively. This starts in Nursery, for example in exploring mark making, paints and putting found objects together, and progresses into gaining knowledge about a diverse range of artists and art works that then inspire the children to try new techniques and media.
Throughout their time with us, children will be provided with opportunities to learn about artists, crafts people and designers both past and present and those from different cultures. In doing this, children will gain an understanding of how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the diversity, culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
Through producing creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences, children will be able to think critically, develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design and learn to appreciate their own work and the work of others.
