This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 in Art and Design for children aged 5, 6 and 7 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with knowing about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understanding the historical and cultural development of their art forms. It focusses in particular on artistic movements, both historical and modern.
Studying art and design is partly about learning new techniques like shading or colour mixing, and partly about learning about the historical development of art. There have been many artistic movements, from the ancient to the modern, and children will look at some of these to see how they have changed over time.
