What others say

It is such an excellent source for all of my art lessons. There is nothing quite like it on the market in terms of art and DT.

Paola Aldus, Head of Art, St Teresa’s School

‘As a new Art leader, Kapow has saved me hours of planing and has provided me with different perspectives to teaching. The wide variety of resources has ensured that a vast majority of skills and techniques are covered. Moreover, the lessons are differentiated which allows all teachers to challenge the students in the class. I and all teachers at Portway Primary School are grateful to Kapow for the hard work and dedication.’
