Art and Design at Castle Hill
"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up" - Pablo Picasso
At Castle Hill, pupils are encouraged to be spontaneously creative, using a variety of media and techniques in art, craft and design. Our aim is to engage, inspire and challenge pupils; they learn to express their ideas and feelings and to record what they see with attention to detail. Pupils study artists, designers and crafts people from a variety of cultures- traditional and contemporary, Western and non-Western.
Pupils are taught to be reflective and critically evaluate their own work and that of others. Pupils have access to a wide range of media and use the specialist equipment and materials, such as desk top easels, to encourage good practise.
