When non-specialists and pupils think of drawing they think of a high;y, skilled talent that only a talented few can attain well. This session will show you how versatile and instinctive drawing can be; show you different drawing forms and styles and hopefully give you the confidence to teach drawing in new and exciting ways.

What Teachers Say

"Very useful, in articular how we assess"

"I’ve loved both of the sessions I’ve attended, they’ve given me so many ideas to share with the staff"

"Thank you very much. Given me lots of ideas about how to encourage the children to use their sketchbooks. I'll share with the staff."

"This has all been really helpful. Especially the fear of the blank pages and coffee stains :) "
