KS3 Year 7 Art and Design
In Art and Design, pupils explore visual, tactile and other sensory experiences to communicate ideas and meanings. They work with traditional and new media, developing confidence, competence, imagination and creativity.
They learn to appreciate and value images and artifacts across times and cultures, and to understand the contexts in which they were made. In Art and Design, pupils reflect critically on their own and other people’s work, judging quality, value and meaning. They learn to think and act as artists, craftspeople and designers, working creatively and intelligently. They develop an appreciation of Art and Design, and its role in the creative and cultural industries that enrich their lives.
In Art and Design lessons, pupils are encouraged to work independently using the skills taught to work creatively. Further study in Year 8 and 9 and ultimately in KS4 follows this model.
