Drawing is a fundamental part of art and design.


This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 in Art and Design for children aged 7 to 11 in years 3 to 6. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with understanding processes and techniques, and it focusses on drawing skills.

Children will refine and practise a variety of techniques and processes as they progress through KS2. Perhaps the simplest of these techniques is drawing. In KS1, they will have learnt how to improve their skills and draw more accurately. Children will now learn how to use different processes to give different results.

Do you know how to use perspective or the different types of pencils? Sharpen your drawing skills in this fun quiz.
