Teaching and learning
The Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Art & Design syllabus aims to encourage a personal response by stimulating imagination, sensitivity, conceptual thinking, powers of observation and analytical ability. Learners gain confidence and enthusiasm as they develop technical skills in two and three dimensional form and composition, and are able to identify and solve problems in visual and tactile forms. They also learn how to develop ideas from initial attempts to final solutions. An ideal foundation for further study, Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Art & Design also develops a greater awareness of the role played by the visual arts in society and in history, broadening cultural horizons and individual experience.
This syllabus is graded from 9 to 1 but is otherwise the same as Cambridge IGCSE Art & Design (0400). You will find past papers and other resources on the web page for Cambridge IGCSE Art & Design (0400); these may be useful for teaching Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Art & Design (0989).
Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Art & Design (0989) is available in the June and November series for schools in the UK only.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
