Art, Craft and Design: Making Connections
DateMon, 17th November, 2014
Time9:30 am - 3:30 pm
LocationNorwich Castle, Norwich
ABOUT THE COURSE
The new primary curriculum for Art and Design, states that learners should ‘know about, ‘great artists, craft makers, designers and architects’.
Participants will be introduced to ways of identifying key players in art history, from the ancient to the contemporary. They will explore how these great artists, can be used to create opportunities in Art, Craft and Design for pupils to make real and meaningful links with their own creative work and how to use them to engage young people in generating ideas and thinking as well as making.
Moving beyond the limited ‘canon of artists’ often used in primary schools, participants will learn and consider, how contemporary art can be used to create opportunities in Art, Craft and Design with a focus on social, moral, and cultural issues.
This will be a highly informative, enjoyable and lively day, with many practical activities, including the “What is Art?” game, (devised by Susan), group discussion, peer-sharing and networking. Many of the activities can be used in the classroom, on the very next day!
£130 for 1 place, £240 for 2 places
