'Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should 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.'
National Curriculum 2014
Here at St. Joseph's we are trying to create pupils who are confident in their own creativity and can use the skills and techniques they learn in their lessons to create their own works of art and design. Our sketchbooks are integral to this process. We start a unit of work researching an artist and investigating their work. Then we experiment in our sketchbooks with colour and techniques in the style of the artist. After this experimentation pupils design their own piece of work, create it and then evaluate it.
