Castle Manor Academy

Year 9 Art

Through Art we explore different cultures as well as British Values. We inspire our students to contribute to exhibitions and organise visits.

We teach our Art students to be creative thinkers, inventive problem solvers and resilient workers.

Year 9

Students learn techniques such as proportion, scale and composition through portraiture and figurative work.

The final term includes either a gallery or artist in resident visit to consider Art in context and career opportunities.

Students develop their own piece based on the theme Identity and study relevant Artists and designers.

Having chosen Art as an option Year 9 have a double lesson of Art weekly for one term. Home learning is set to support the learning done in class.
