Art and Design


We believe that creating and exploring artistic projects expands a child’s ability to interact with the world around them. It helps them build and fine tune the skills needed for self-expression and communication. When children explore art ideas, they are testing possibilities and working through challenges. The child’s brain becomes engaged in the discovery of ‘how’ and ‘why’.

We also believe that the act of producing art, either through drawing, sculpting, painting or textiles, can positively influence other areas of learning, with significant growth in the areas of oral language expression and social interpersonal skills.
