At Ackton Pastures we believe that art and design plays a key part in every child’s creative development. Our aspiration is to provide an enriching art and design education so we can engage, inspire and challenge pupils and equip them with the ability to experiment, invent and create. Through teaching children art and design techniques, we believe we provide our pupils with the skills, concepts and knowledge to allow them to express their responses to ideas and experiences. It fires their imagination and is a fundamental means of personal expression.
“The rapidly evolving global economy demands a dynamic and creative workforce. The arts and its related businesses are responsible for billions of dollars in cultural exports for this country. It is imperative that we continue to support the arts and arts education both on the national and local levels. The strength of every democracy is measured by its commitment to the arts.”
– Charles Segars, CEO of Ovation
