Expressive Arts


“Through this Area of Learning and Experience, children and young people can be encouraged to develop their creative appreciation and talent and their artistic and performance skills.

The expressive arts provide opportunities to explore thinking, refine, and communicate ideas, engaging thinking, imagination and senses creatively. They also promote exploration of issues of personal and cultural identity.

Engagement with the expressive arts requires application, perseverance and close attention to detail, capacities that have benefits across learning more widely.

The Expressive Arts Area of Learning and Experience will span art, drama, music, dance, film and digital media.”
