Art and Design

Department Staff

Introduction

The Art and Design department at Lincoln Castle Academy provides a lively and stimulating environment where students have the opportunity to create work using a range of media and techniques and be inspired a range of artists and art movements.

Teaching ensures that students investigate, explore and develop their ideas and skills through individual and collaborative work. Projects are designed to build on prior learning and allow progression with regular opportunities to use ICT and digital media.

The teachers within the Art Department are artists in their own right and offer the fruits of their own practical experience.

To ensure a varied experience of artistic techniques and skills taught, the schemes of work for each year group are carefully compiled. We maximise opportunities for progression from one year group to the next by regularly updating new projects building on prior learning.
