At Claines C.E. Primary School, we believe that art stimulates children’s continuous journey of creativity and unique self-expression. It inspires and fires their imagination, giving our pupils the skills and ideas necessary to observe and respond to concepts and experiences, often in a spontaneous, adventurous and experimental way. Art is a visual and kinaesthetic means through which to engage with and explore social, moral, emotional and cultural ideas and meanings. 

“Art is not just a subject to learn, but an activity that you can practise with your hands, your eyes, your whole personality.” Quentin Blake
