Art Curricular Objectives

 

“Every Westwoodian to enjoy art, communicate visually

and make meaning through connecting with society and culture.”


   The Art Department seeks to nurture every pupil to be visually-literate and appreciative of the visual art forms. At Westwood Primary, we believe that Art is important in the holistic development of a child.  Each child is a unique individual that sees, expresses and appreciates things differently. By developing visual inquiry skills and building confidence, curiosity, imagination and enjoyment in artmaking, we are laying a strong foundation for a child’s creative development, in order that he or she develops as a flourishing individual..
