At TGPAH we believe that 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 and craft. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of the different elements of design and a wider variety of art techniques. 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. Throughout, children will be challenged to consider what constitutes art, and why art is important.
