Art & Design

 

Art, craft and design provide a unique opportunity for creativity.  A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equiping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.  Art and design shapes our cultural heritage and reflects our history.
