No Mistakes In Art
Art gives children the opportunity to experiment using their imagination. This helps them become more resilient when encountering obstacles, which then they are able to find different ways to approach problems. We believe it is important for children to understand that there are 'no mistakes in art'. Having this ethos allows them to be free with their artwork, creating designs to be proud of, which helps boost their confidence.
