Learning about printing at Bradfield Dungworth. (October 2020)
Contact us to arrange a personalised training session for your school. Training is interactive, with lots of practical ideas and advice to use in the classroom.
For a practical, hands-on session, we can visit your school. All you need to do is pick the topics you would like to cover, finalise a date and select a full day, half day or twilight session.
Or if you prefer remote support, we now offer a one hour staff training session via Zoom.
Here is the list of topics we cover:
Five Steps for a successful DT unit
Sketching techniques (includes advice on still life, landscapes and portrait drawing)
Painting (using watercolour, acrylic, mixing paints, applying different painting effects)
Working with clay
Textiles (weaving, embroidery, collage, batik, tie-dye)
Studying artists and architects
Fun and engaging starter activities
Improving speaking and listening through art
Or if you would like to update and improve your art curriculum, we can help you to create a bespoke art curriculum for your school.

"It was a pleasure to work with Christine. She was patient and supportive when we came to her with a bespoke request to create a new art curriculum for the whole school."
"We now have a more coherent curriculum, which has a clear rationale behind it. There is a clear overview, from which all teachers are planning. This ensures that there is appropriate breadth and balance in the curriculum."
