Using different materials and sticking them down is called collage.


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 artistic processes and techniques.

Children will learn and then practise a variety of artistic techniques and processes as they progress through KS1. They will be exposed to many different processes by which art can be created and so learn how to control and manipulate media in order to give a pleasing result or a particular finish.
