Art and Design

Art is for most pupils a natural form of expression and a source of great pleasure.  We encourage pupils to develop their creative and imaginative talents through learning skills and techniques using a variety of materials and tools. During their time in Castleway the children will be exposed to a range of Art genres.

Pupils’ understanding of Art and Design is developed through knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the work of other artists past and present and from different cultures.

Pupils also learn to appreciate works of art and use artistic language to describe paintings, sculptures and other artefacts.  We also use the local environment as a source of enrichment with visits to museums and galleries.
