Art & Design
Art & Design gives learners a platform to express themselves, sparking imagination, creativity and developing transferable skills. Students explore and push boundaries to become reflective, critical and decisive thinkers. They learn how to articulate personal responses to their experiences.
What will students learn?
Students develop creative skills that will help with many aspects of their future learning and development. They will:
- learn to see themselves as artists and become increasingly reflective and independent
- develop the skills needed to express creative ideas and to communicate visually
- understand their place and the place of others in a creative, innovative and interconnected world.
How is the program taught?
Cambridge Primary Art & Design is taught through a broad range of investigative, art-making and reflective activities. These include a number of study areas, for example painting, print making, model making or digital art, but you can also apply the curriculum content to your local context, using the resources that you have available. This course supports progression to Cambridge Lower Secondary Art & Design
How is Cambridge Primary Art & Design assessed?
There are no Cambridge Primary Progression Tests or Checkpoint for this subject.
The emphasis of this course is for teachers to give learners formative feedback on the skills they want students to develop. This can be through discussion, observation and lesson outputs where teachers discuss with students ‘what went well’ and how they can improve further, so that students can reflect on and improve their performance.
