ART AND DESIGN TECHNOLOGY AT AINTREE DAVENHILL PRIMARY SCHOOL

Children at Aintree Davenhill Primary School love being creative! Art lessons give them opportunities to apply their creativity in a variety of ways. As well as lessons being taught by the class teacher in their classrooms as part of a creative curriculum, children also have access to our fantastic art studio. Work produced by the children is celebrated by being put on display in corridors and classrooms, shown during celebration assemblies and even put on display in our very own art exhibition.
