Expressive Arts

Experiences in the expressive arts involve creating and presenting and are practical and experiential. Evaluating and appreciating are used to enhance enjoyment and develop knowledge and understanding.

Learning in, through and about the expressive arts:

  • enables children to experience the inspiration and power of the arts
  • recognises and nurtures their creative and aesthetic talents
  • allows them to develop skills and techniques that are relevant to specific art forms and across the four capacities
  • provides opportunities for them to deepen their understanding of culture in Scotland and the wider world
  • is enhanced and enriched through partnerships with professional arts companies, creative adults and cultural organisations.

From Primary 4 onwards pupils have the opportunity to receive instrumental tuition in music provided by the Local Authority Music Service both during the day and on Saturday mornings in Williamwood High School. In Primary 4 the violin/viola are available and in later stages children can be considered for guitar, cello, clarsach and woodwind instruments.
