Castle Primary School

'Adventure Together; Learn Forever'

Art and Design

Our Art curriculum provides children with opportunities to develop their skills using a range of media and materials. Children learn the skills of drawing, painting, printing, collage, textiles, 3D work and digital art and are given the opportunity to explore and evaluate different creative ideas. The skills they acquire are applied to their cross-curricular topics, allowing children to use their art skills to reflect on and explore topics in greater depth; for example, by sketching historical artefacts in detail, researching geographical locations to support their work on landscape painting or using art as a medium to express emotion and thought to enhance their personal, social and emotional development.  Children are encouraged to take risks and experiment and then reflect on why some ideas and techniques are successful or not for a particular project.

We are lucky enough to have our purpose built art room where are lessons take place.
