At this stage of learning pupils will develop a wide range of skills through Critical, Design and Expressive activities. Each year pupils explore the visual elements such as colour, tone, shape, pattern and texture using a variety of different materials. The courses and programmes of work have been developed using the CfE Experiences and Outcomes in tandem with the Benchmarks for Expressive Arts. Homework is set at regular times throughout the year and is designed to enhance and support the classroom learning. Pupils are given the opportunity for inter-disciplinary learning during S1, S2 and S3.
