Curriculum CPD – Embedding Art Teaching & Learning

Please note: Due to current restrictions both parts of this course will be carried out online.

This course will support you in building confidence in primary art teaching by building on your own practical skills and subject knowledge.

You will build confidence in drawing skills and explore how drawing can act as a foundation to the other mediums. You will gain an insight into successful art planning using the teaching backwards structure, embedding skills over time and leading to a high-quality final outcome.

By the end of the course you will:

  • Take away lots of practical ideas and drawing techniques to support teachers with their own confidence in where to start in EYFS, KS1 and KS2
  • Understand how to make cross curricular links within art teaching and the wider curriculum. 
  • Be confident in breaking down art lessons into manageable sessions that embed skills overtime.
  • Be Inspired to develop your own art planning and teaching practice going forward.

Please note this course is being run over 2 sessions. See on the next tab for details…
