Really useful Art Courses

Useful art courses

Athelstan County 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 or to simply have a go at something you might not have tried before at affordable prices.

This year there will be three twilight sessions, all in the summer term

Tuesday 17th April 2018


In this session we will look at the different types of paint and brushes. We will have a go at using watercolours or acrylics to paint a landscape scene and consider some of the basic rules for using the medium. There will be the opportunity to look at a range of lesson ideas for a range of ages.


Tuesday 22nd May 2018
Mosaic & Montage

In this session we will have a look at some of the skills and knowledge around the theme of mosaic and montage. It will give you a chance to have a go at using resources that you may not have tried before or work through some other ideas that you think would be great for your pupils to try.

Tuesday 26th June 2018

In this session we will explore the range of the media. Discuss projects and have a go at producing our own work of art too. If you have an idea, school projects or planning that you would like to talk through, please bring it along and be creative.
