At Great Chart, Art and Design are vessels through which we foster creativity and embrace the uniqueness of every child.

Carefully planned units of art, which build around our Golden threads, enable children to develop their confidence, creativity and level of skill. As we explore and discuss a range of diverse artists, designers, architects and craft makers, personal preferences are formed and inspiration gained to enable the formulation of meaningful ideas to be expressed however chosen. Reflection and creative experimentation, in hand with progressive skill teaching and practice, means everyone produces revised finished pieces to be proud of and reflect individuality - we love spending time looking at each other’s work and discussing these!
