Art and design is one of those subjects that many schools feel is not covered as effectively as it should be.

This publication has been produced to help schools and academies have an art curriculum that helps to develop children’s art techniques and skills but at the same time provides clarity about the steps that need to be taken.

Stages are identified which includes the ‘link it’ stage; a stage to research the artist and the genre of art being studied; it identifies the skills and techniques to be developed and then move on to the mock up stage before the final piece is produced.

Effectively there is a drawing, painting and sculpture unit for each age group. In other words, there are three units per year, enabling a comprehensive art curriculum to be delivered at your school.

It provides a clear guide on a step-by-step basis and is essentially a curriculum that can be delivered by non-specialists, as well as those with a great deal of confidence delivering art lessons.

The publication provides you with two alternative ways of ensuring that there is a progression map in place and either may prove to be very effective in ensuring progression and continuity in children’s learning in art. It also provides you with a guide as to what a sketchbook should look like.

Beyond this, I have included a step-by-step plan of delivering art at a very effective level.

In addition, I have included a number of artists who could be used to support children’s art development and a list of how they could do so through different artistic features.

I have included an early years’ section as well as examples of specific retrieval activities from Bethany Hunter’s book ‘Retrieval Examples specific to Art & Design’ which is an ideal partner to this book from Focus Education.
