Art and design stimulates creativity and imagination. Here at The Dassett the children are given a breadth of experiences and their work is displayed and celebrated throughout the school.
Purpose of study:
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. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
