About this course

This three-part programme supports primary practitioners to improve their teaching of art and design. Each session is about two hours long but supports half a day of reflection and development.

Session 1 looks at what we choose to teach:

  • Creating a strong rationale to engage children in each bit of art learning
  • Ensuring you have a rich progression in skills and knowledge
  • What should we include in the ‘perfect’ art lesson?

Session 2 aims to help teachers develop their subject knowledge in art:

  • The ‘Elements of Art’, and other technical terms
  • A quick guide to the history of western art
  • How to develop your practical skills

Session 3 explores how we teach art, and how we establish and evidence impact:

  • Is there a ‘Greater Depth’ in art, and how might we teach it?
  • Assessment approaches that don’t divert from the real substance of learning
  • Exploring ‘cultural capital’ in art
