KS3 Art and Design
The study of art and design promotes and enriches students’ overall educational experience by presenting them with the opportunities to develop their creative, intellectual and artistic abilities. It also provides them with stimulating and challenging opportunities to develop personal knowledge, skills and to achieve their full potential.
Pupils join school in Year 8 having come from different experiences and understanding of formal Art and Design lessons. From this, pupils will begin with the basics and develop their skills and techniques through a variety of creative processes.
Art and Design activities encourage pupils to:
- respond to the world around them;
- respond to their individual feelings and emotions;
- develop and use their imagination;
- express their ideas, thoughts and feelings; solve problems; and
- become more aesthetically aware
