Creative Arts

We believe Creative Arts is for everyone. It builds confidence, a broader understanding of the world and a chance to express ourselves.

Creative Arts at Parkside aims to develop an understanding of other artists, musicians and designers from a range of places and times.

Creative Arts allow students to express themselves and share their thoughts and ideas.

Creative Arts are playful and joyful. They encourage independent thought and team work and imagination.

Creative Arts develops fine motor skills, expressive making, emotive responses and artistic techniques.

Creative Arts support children’s future wellbeing, self awareness and the chance to develop both a methodical and an expressive approach to tasks that could be applied to future experiences.

Creative Arts at Parkside will  teach children the knowledge of audio/visual language, the skills of application and the choice of personal expression.
