ART & DESIGN AT GUESTLING

Art & Design contributes to the school curriculum by integrating seeing, feeling, thinking and making in a powerful form of learning. Art educates visual and tactile senses and the imagination, Design and technology prepares children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. It involves working with different materials, processes and technologies for a range of purposes, and develops practical, investigative, creative and technical skills. Art & Design is taught in order to acquire knowledge and understanding of the significant contribution of artists, makers and designers from the past and in the contemporary world. It promotes the ability to pose and solve complex problems and take risks. It encourages the development of enquiry skills, which enable pupils to engage confidently with all forms of visual arts.
