Art & Design / DT

*Unfortunately we are unable to offer any Art CPD sessions this year 2022-23*

Previously in 2021-22 and hopefully again in 2023-24:

Our Art/DT network is not to be missed and will heavily support leads within school.

All sessions are led by national consultant Julie Mitchell FRSA and take place between 1:15- 5:15pm at St Bernard’s, Ellesmere Port. Please arrive no later than 12:55 to register. Tea and coffee provided.

These sessions will be heavy on the practical side of things, so get ready to get stuck in and have some fun whilst picking up tips and ideas for your classroom practice! Delegates need aprons, charged laptops, memory stick, smart phones, and their own sketchbook. We’d urge all Art / DT leads to benefit from this

Autumn: Thursday 16th September 2021 1:15-5:15: GEOMETRY: Art and design (particularly drawing/painting, sculpture with some references to architecture)/Design Technology (construction) and Maths Y1-6 – replacing ARCHITECTURE: Art and Design – sculpture/Design Technology – construction

Summer: Thursday 21st April 2022 1:15-5:15: PRESENTING DATA: Art and Design (particularly drawing, digital media) Y1-6 – replacing PATTERNS FROM AROUND THE WORLD: Textile Art with a bit of printing/Textile Design

Please note that your booking covers all 3 sessions across the 2021-22 academic year. Please add all dates to your diaries / calendars. You will also be asked to provide the name and direct email address of the delegate attending so that information and reminders can be sent out prior to the event taking place.

Really refreshing course and opportunity to a) show progression of skills and knowledge needed when teaching children – and b) amazing practical sessions for own CPD and practice as an artist to boost skills.” Sarah Evans.

Fantastic afternoon! Learnt some new skills! Looking forward to the next session!” Bethany Smethurst

Really enjoyable course and was a perfect balance between teaching and practical opportunity. I feel more confident to teach art in a range of different ways/different techniques! Thank you.” Bethan.

Hands on experience beats any lecture or PowerPoint. Brilliant!” Emily Skillen
