Drawing is a Class Act, Years 5–6 provides a structured approach to the development of drawing skills. Using a skills-based approach to teaching drawing will raise standards in art and more importantly, pupils’ self-esteem and confidence, which in turn will help promote high standards in other curriculum areas. It is aimed at supporting non-specialist teachers, but more experienced art teachers will find it useful too.

Drawing is a Class Act was Winner of Best Curriculum Material in the Global Learning Initiative Awards at Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2006.

This book is the third in a series of three. The Drawing is a Class Act series links well to the National Curriculum for Art and Design. It provides a coherent structure for ensuring that pupils at Key Stages 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
