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.
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.
It is one of a three-book series, covering the entire primary age range. 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
