Overview

Teaching practical skills in art and design, especially if you are a non-specialist can be difficult. Perhaps you are new to the subject or a novice yourself, or just want to know how to effectively disseminate skills across the curriculum. This full day of practical art skills CPD will give each of the mandatory domain areas of drawing, painting and sculpture the time and space to be properly absorbed and understood. You’ll come away feeling energised and empowered to teach skills more successfully. This is an online event, so you’ll need a good internet connection, a quiet space, some art materials, and a work area.
