Art and Design at Gateway Primary School
At Gateway Primary School we value Art and Design as an important part of our exciting broad and balanced curriculum.
We believe that Art is a subject that offers hands on learning and opportunities for all. As well as developing core skills such as drawing, printing, painting and sculpting, artists have opportunities to explore and express their thoughts and ideas.
