Pressing paint-covered things, like hands, onto paper is known as printing.


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 understanding processes and techniques, and it focusses on materials.

Children will learn and then practise a variety of different processes and techniques to manipulate materials and media as they progress through KS1. They may be able to experiment with combining different media to see what happens or may apply techniques and processes they have already learnt in order to achieve a particular effect.
