In Ysgol y Gogarth we provide a learning environment that encourages the pupils to investigate, invent, explore and express their ides and feelings.
The pupils have the opportunity to explore and celebrated different cultures, stories, festivals and traditions throughout the world. Through the creative arts.
They have the opportunity to visit sites of artistic and cultural interest and visit a range of places to stimulate artistic ideas. They are encouraged to participate in workshops by practising artists and visit local galleries and visit exhibitions.
The emphasis in the art curriculum is on the quality of the pupils experience rather than the final outcome but all pupils do have the opportunity to develop their artistic skills and work towards
