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.
