Art, Design and Topic Work 8-13

Art, Design and Topic Work 8-13

by RobBarnes (Author)


This readable and practical book offers a creative approach to teaching art and design to the 8 to 13 age range. It suggests a variety of ways in which art can form a focus of learning across the whole curriculum. How can art and design grow from mathematics or such well-worn topics as 'The Vikings'? How do children develop their drawing ability? How can they be more inventive and original with resources? How might children learn to respond to works of art and develop their critical skills? How can teachers organize art activities within an already crowded timetable? These and many other issues are presented in order to encourage teachers and children to develop their own solutions as well as to make use of those which the author describes. Illustrated with many examples of children's work, a set of photographic themes on which to draw as well as resource charts and diagrams, this book meets the needs of the teacher in the classroom.
