Art and design in Education

'It is sometimes helpful to make sure we are aware if the two major strands of this whole experience. First is expressive, which links art with the other arts, giving opportunity for a variety of human expressions, and interrelating naturally when the idea requires; second, the design aspect, which links it with curriculum areas concerned with planning, crafting, making and evaluation processes.'

'Art and design experience in an education context is essentially practical, making use of the clear logic of visual and tactile language, while also taking into account the intuitive modes of approach. At the heart of this experience lies how the discovery of how materials are reshaped and reformed to make statements of personal expression.'
