Art and Design

"Every child is an Artist."

Pablo Picasso

Art and Design at Charlton House

Art and Design is a journey of discovery at Charlton House. We believe that Art, Craft and Design embody a high form of human creativity and expression.

Our Art programme at Charlton House aims to inspire, challenge and equip all children with the knowledge and skills to embark on a journey of experimentation and to invent and create their own unique works of art, craft and design. We also teach how art and design reflect and shape our history and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

Situated on our expansive ‘Creative Arts’ floor, our Arts and Crafts studio occupies a third of our spacious and extensive top floor. Strategically placed alongside the performing arts and music studio and recently refurbished library, the entire Creative Arts floor enjoys views over the entire city of Southampton. From the serenity of nature and woodland views to the bright lights of the bustling city in the distance. The views transform depending on the time of day, month and season and this unique horizon offers our pupils inspiration; an escape to conjure, harness and express their creativity.
