Painting is a Class Act, Years 1-2 provides a structured approach to the development of painting skills at Key Stage 1 (KS1). It is aimed specifically at non-specialist art teachers, but more experienced art teachers will find it inspirational too.
Painting is a Class Act, Years 1-2: A Skills-based Approach to Teaching Painting in Primary Schools is one of a three-book series, covering the entire primary age range.
Using a skill-based approach to painting will:
- Raise standards in art
- Boost children's self-esteem and confidence, which in turn will help promote high standards in other curriculum areas.
- Clearly sets out the progression of skills to be taught for colour mixing, colour theory, watercolours, history of painting, using works of art and other techniques and media
- Gives examples of how the skills can be applied
- Contains carefully planned, clearly laid-out lesson plans
The Painting is a Class Act series links well to the new National Curriculum for Art and Design. It provides a coherent structure for ensuring that pupils at Key Stage 1 and 2:
- learn to use drawing and painting to explore their ideas and record their experiences
- become proficient in painting and drawing
- develop the ability to use the language of art to evaluate and analyse creative works
- know about great artists and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms
