Art is a vision on paper, design is knowledge made visible. Art and Design, as a subject, integrates a broad field of visual arts practices, including drawing, painting, illustration, graphic art, sculpture, architecture, print making, photography, textile art, work in paper, canvas, wood and other materials, ceramics, digital art, crafts, and other emerging techniques.

This New Vision Art and Design Book One is interactive and practical: it embraces the true attributes of a vocational subject. Throughout this textbook, emphasis has been put not merely on what the learner knows (knowledge), but rather what he or she can do (skill/applicability) with the acquired knowledge to solve real-life problems in the community. The textbook is structured for the learner to not only delight in learning the subject, but also to develop an eye to spot opportunities where he or she can apply their knowledge and skills to solve real-life problems. In this way, a learner can potentially start applying his or her knowledge and skills to earn an income, even before completing school.

Diligent use of this textbook shall also positively impact the learner by cultivating and growing their sense of creativity and innovation, entrepreneurship, self- expression, appreciation of cultural diversity and respect for nature. Exposure to Art and Design will aid the learner to do well in other subjects that apply different artistic principles, such as, Biology, Geography, Technology and Design, History and Performing Arts, among others. Consequently, Art and Design opens the learner to diverse career paths, including painter, graphics designer, cartoonist, illustrator, fashion designer, photographer, and many others.

Generic skills, essential life skills and values, as well as, appreciation of other cross-cutting issues have been catered for in this textbook. In line with the National Development Plan objectives of increasing sustainable production, productivity and value addition, this Art and Design textbook intends to transform the learner into a model citizen, whose technical and vocational training shall prepare him or her to become a job creator rather than a job seeker.
