Art and Craft

This subject area can frequently be linked with other areas of the Curriculum, yet is also fostered as important in its own right, for it is a means of stimulating activities and encouraging individual expression, giving pleasure, enjoyment and personal satisfaction.

Art and Craft helps to develop the child’s aesthetic awareness of their environment, and also facilitates the development of manipulative skills and knowledge of the variety of materials, colours and textures available for work in this field.
