At Innova Primary School, the Art department aims to enable our pupils to make sense of what they see as well as to enable them to communicate their ideas. Through art discussion, pupils also see the relevance of art in their lives as they look at art pieces and discuss artists’ as well as peers’ work. They develop the ability to think deeply and make meaning from what they see. Through art making, pupils are exposed to different techniques and mediums as they learn to express their emotions, thoughts and ideas. Pupils are encouraged to apply their learning from art discussions in their art making.
