Art and Design

Art and Design stimulates creativity and imagination.  It provides a wealth of experiences and a creative way of understanding and responding to the world.  At Pirbright Village Primary School we believe that Art and Design is a significant and valuable part of the curriculum. Pupils learn to communicate what they see, feel and think by exploring the visual, sensory and tactile qualities of art forms produced in different times and cultures. At Pirbright we enable the children to develop and extend these ideas by applying a variety of skills and techniques to different media to create their own images. It is through making these images that children learn about the real world around them.
