Our approach to Art & Design

Get your creative juices flowing and incorporate plenty of cross-curricular learning with our expert-created teaching resources, lesson plans and demonstration videos. Short video demos make it simple for you to deliver activities in the classroom that seem daunting on paper. All lessons are built on four key pillars: generating ideas, evaluating, knowledge and making, and ensure progression of skills. This means it is  easy to adapt to your own topics and curriculum, or you can save even more time by adopting our example topics.

On top of that, we provide you with high quality imagery, saving you time and introducing children to inspirational artists and craftspeople from around the world!
