Modern technologies mean that the principles of quality arts education are the same (as they ever were) and different. Discussion in this paper is based on a small research project that used art as pedagogy, art as research method and, for the young children participants, celebrated art for art's sake. The project was designed with two aims. Firstly, the authors were interested in how young children engage with media as a strand of the arts. This also informed some of their thinking around the debates over Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as a process for the production of a media text. Secondly, they were interested in the extent to which digital media could enable young children to make their learning visible.
