In Hong Kong, except for Art and Craft and Physical Education, official proved school textbooks for pupils and teacher’s handbooks are widely adopted by all primary school subjects. When Art and craft primary teachers in Hong Kong schedule their lessons, they can only follow the official curriculum prepared by the Curriculum Development Council of the Education Department of Hong Kong. Thus, the official curriculum plays a very important role in guiding the primary Art and Craft teachers in planning their taught curriculum. In this paper, the writer tries to examine the developmental trend of the aims of the planned Hong Kong Primary Schools Art and Craft Curriculum from 50’s to 90’s.
