At NIA we believe that Art and Design is an important part of the curriculum. It supports students’ personal development through creativity and self-expression, alongside developing resilience, confidence and critical thinking skills. We aim to engage learners in the creative process, encouraging them to express their individuality, whilst building skills in problem solving, decision making about their own work and that of others - learning to reflect and evaluate as work progresses. We promote the enjoyment of Art for itself, the development of skills with increasing mastery as they progress and their engagement in Art Craft and design - which can then be taken forward either into exams, or for itself, and have a lifelong impact with a love of art and artwork.
