Painting is a Class Act, Years 5-6 provides a structured approach to the development of painting skills at upper Key Stage 2 (KS2). 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 5-6: 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.

The series:

  • 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
