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 is the first of two quizzes focusing on famous historical artists and their works.
Studying art and design is partly about learning new techniques like shading or colour mixing, and partly about learning about the development of art over the centuries. One aspect of this is the most famous historical artists whose works have shaped the art world.
