WHAT IS ART AND DESIGN?

Art and Design is difficult to define, but one definition is that Art and Design are ways of expressing and communicating experiences, feelings and ideas in a visual form, using various methods and techniques. Children become involved in shaping their environments through Art and Design activities. They learn to make informed judgements and aesthetic and practical decisions. They explore ideas and meanings through the work of Artists, Crafts people and Designers. Through learning about the roles and functions of Art, they can explore the impact it has had on contemporary life and that of different times and cultures. The appreciation and enjoyment the visual arts has on enriching our lives.
