Art and design is concerned with the way we respond to, understand, interpret and shape our world through our senses and emotions. Taking part in art and design allows us to investigate what we see; to make visual responses; to interpret; to discriminate and reach decisions. Art and design has its own language based upon visual and tactile elements and it is our rationale to ensure all children have the opportunity to explore their own creativity and individuality.

As part of Waterton Academy Trust, the Art Network was started to collaboratively share ideas, skill sets and look at developing a cohesive art curriculum across the schools for the continued benefit of the children under our care. This year marks its third annual Art Tour Exhibition, which sees schools across the MAT join in and take part in a combined project.
Continuing on from last year's successful tour we will once again be undertaking a significant artist based project, this year focusing on our painting skills and techniques across each year group using the inspirations of many famous European artists, like Van Gogh, Picaasso, Cezanne, Kandinsky and many many more.
