Primary Art, Craft and Design

We believe Art, Craft and Design stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a unique way of understanding and responding to the world around us.
Pupils at George Mitchell Primary Phase are encouraged to explore ideas and meanings in the work of artists, craftspeople and designers, learning about the diverse roles and functions of art, craft and design in contemporary life, and in different times and cultures both historical and contemporary.


This year George Mitchell will be taking part in The Big Draw. The Big Draw Festival is a worldwide celebration of drawing! The Big Draw promotes the universal language of drawing as a tool for learning, expression and invention.
The Festival is made up of a collection of thousands of creative events, activities and workshops across the globe run by organisations big and small including schools just like ours.
