Art and Design

Purpose of studying art and design

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education will engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they will be taught to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They will also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

 

Aims

The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:

 

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences;

 

  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques;

 

  • evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design;

 

  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
