In primary school, children are given opportunities to explore their ideas by experimenting, inventing and creating their own varied works of art using a range of materials. They will learn how to draw, paint, sculpt and explore other art, craft and design techniques. Children can take their experiences of the world and transform them through art, making new connections and relationships through their inventive minds. Their knowledge, memories and fantasies all feed their imagination. Art allows children to explore, build on and record their own creative and imaginative ideas.
The problem of underachievement is very serious. These students aren't living up to their potential. Because of their large numbers, it makes sense for teachers to take a group approach to fostering self-motivation.
