Expressive Arts and Design - What is it?


Children learn how to explore and manipulate materials and media to achieve a desired effect, for example, through painting and modelling. Children also develop their imagination through role play and other creative ways. 


In the Revised Early Years Foundation Stage, EAD is broken down into two aspects:

  • Exploring and Using Media and Materials
  • Being Imaginative
