EPD Art & Design Curriculum
Art and design education engages, inspires and challenges children, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As children progress, they learn to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. Importantly, they develop an understanding of how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of cultures and societies.
At GSIS, the EPD curriculum for Art and Design aims for children to:
- produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
- evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
- know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art
