Expressive Arts and Design

Expressive arts and design involves supporting children to explore and play with a wide
range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement
for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music,
movement, dance, role play, and design and technology.


ELG 16 Exploring and using media and materials: Children sing songs, make music
and dance, and experiment with ways of changing them. They safely use and
explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour,
design, texture, form and function.
ELG 17 Being imaginative: Children use what they have learnt about media and
materials in original ways, thinking about uses and purposes. They represent their
own ideas, thoughts and feelings through design and technology, art, music,
dance, role play and stories.
