Oxford Castle Unlocked Launches New Art Workshop

Written by: Elmtree Press

Oxford Castle Unlocked have launched a new art workshop for Key Stage 2 called Panoramic Prints. The exciting new workshop takes inspiration from the amazing views of the Oxford sky line from the Castle Mound and St George’s Tower. Pupils will use viewfinders to compose their sketches, before making their own relief prints to take back to school in order to create a colourful panorama around the classroom.

 

Oxford Castle Unlocked is a 1000-year-old castle, nestled in the heart of Oxford city centre. Visitors are invited to join a costumed character tour guide to explore the historic buildings and the fascinating stories behind them, including the Saxon stone-built St. George’s Tower and the story of an Empress’ escape, the atmospheric crypt set on the footprint where the famous tales of King Arthur were penned, the preserved Georgian prison wing which housed a variety of intriguing and questionable characters, and the archaic man-made mound, offering breath-taking views over Oxford’s dreaming spires.

 

Guided tours and workshops are available for schools of all key stages throughout the year and include topics which incorporate key learning objectives in the national curriculum.
