At Denton West End art and design stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the world. It enables children to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes. Children become involved in shaping their environments through art and design activities. They learn to make informed judgements and aesthetic and practical decisions. They explore ideas and meanings through the work of artists and designers. Through learning about the roles and functions of art, they can explore the impact it has had on contemporary life and that of different times and cultures. The appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts enriches all our lives.

Our Wonderful Art Displays
We have lots of lovely pieces of art work displayed throughout the school. The work is from topics we have covered in class and also from our art sessions with a professional artist. Mr Doyle comes into each class throughout the year to teach us art skills. See some of the photographs below for examples of our eye catching work!
