At Dorchester, we try to nurture a love of Art, as it is an essential part of life and culture. It lies all around us; from the design of your wallpaper, to the pattern on your clothes, to a tapestry on a wall, to your favourite album cover.

Learning about and exploring Art allows the children an opportunity to experiment and be creative in a subjective way. Exploring different media and techniques grows the creative mind, helping children to express themselves, develop new skills and discover passions and talents without bounds. 

Pablo Picasso once said “Every child is an artist, the problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
