Art and Design Technology
Art enables children to use their creativity and imagination by exploring different materials and processes. At Mab Lane children are given the opportunity to experiment with mark making, gain a greater understanding of colour, shape, pattern and texture and they are encouraged to express their ideas and feelings through a range of art activities.
