Crafting is fundamental to human existence, predating written language. It plays a major role in human evolution and development. Each involves a different way of thinking:
- Emphasises ideas, feelings, and visual qualities
- Craft emphasises the right use of tools and materials
- Design emphasises planning, problem-solving and completion, using drawing as a means of thinking
These unite in the basic human drive to shape the world, for functional purposes, and to express and communicate ideas and feelings. The contribution of the visual and plastic arts to life is a unique and enriching experience for all.
Crafting provides a unique part of the education of the whole person, through heart, head and hand, enabling the person to shape his or her world with discernment, and to understand and appreciate the work of others.
