As well as a means of expressing individuality and developing creativity, art is an essential part of a broad and balanced curriculum. It encourages independent learning through experimentation, exploration and innovation and the value of cultural learning is significant.
This invaluable “cultural currency” can be transferred and applied across many areas and ideas – not just through traditional creative subjects like art.
