'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.
