At St Albans East primary school students participate in Visual Arts lessons which involve students making and responding to artworks and drawing on the world as a source of ideas to develop their creative and expressive capacities. Students engage with and develop knowledge of visual arts skills, techniques and processes. They use a range of materials as they explore the different areas of art such as drawing, painting, construction, textiles, collage, modeling and printmaking. Students are both artists and audience in the Arts. Learning in the Visual Arts helps students to develop an understanding of world cultures and their responsibilities as global citizens.
