Really useful Art Courses

 Useful art courses.
Athelstan Community Primary School would like to invite you to this year’s ‘really useful’ art courses.
Our courses are open to Art Co-ordinators, teachers, teaching assistants or any other staff you think would enjoy these experiences.
Our aim is to equip you with skills, art techniques and hopefully a little more confidence to implement art within your classroom. All of our sessions will refer to progression in line with the new curriculum’s milestones.

This year there will be three twilight sessions
Thursday 9th February 2017
Felt Making and sewing skills.

I have put on a felt making course before but this is an opportunity to further skills and learn something new. Bring a smooth 8cm to 12 cm (approx) pebble. Also, unless it’s your ‘thing’ sewing skills might be something you want to improve. Understand the basic stiches; learn some embroidery and consider how this can also be implemented into you DT curriculum too.

Drawing and sketch books

During this twilight we will look at how to encourage confidence when drawing. Not just for your pupils but maybe for you too. Think big. Think bold and come and have a go and get some ideas. Every art project should start with the children drawing and working on their sketch books. OFSTED love to look at sketch books. Are you getting the most out of them?

Thursday 8th June 2017

In this session we will explore the possibilities of sculpture using different materials (wire, wood, card etc). Discuss projects and have a go at producing our own work of art too. If you have any scrap materials that you were wondering what to do with, bring it along and be creative.
