Art

At the Airthrie School Art Clubs we encourage children to be creative, develop their own ideas, have fun exploring different materials and techniques and produce individual pieces of Art.  We hope to:

Personal creativity is key and each child works at their own level and on their own project.  The children will interpret art in their own way!  Over a few weeks they will create a piece of art that will be displayed in school initially and then taken home.

All materials will be provided unless there is something specific that they wish to bring in from home to develop their own ideas.

If you have any queries about Art Club please contact the School Office and leave a message for Mrs Sue Elliott.
