Introduction to Art and design
A high-quality Art and design education embodies some of the highest forms of human creativity. It 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. Building on this, they will be able 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.
