Key Stage 3 - Art




                       Art and design has a statutory programme of study at Key Stage 3. The statutory programmes of study are an important
                       element of the wider curriculum and establish the core entitlement for all pupils.

                        In art, craft 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 artefacts across times and cultures, and to understand the contexts in which they were made. In art, craft 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.
