Our approach to Art & Design

It’s difficult not to be inspired by our Art lessons! Our subject specialists have captured all of their passion in an outstanding collection of lessons to get your creative juices flowing and incorporating plenty of cross-curricular learning.

Activities that may seem daunting on paper are brought to life in our video demos, making them simple for you to deliver in the classroom, and easy to adapt to your own topics.

Some lessons explicitly teach the discreet skills of art, craft and design, such as painting, shading and sculpture and all lessons are built on four key pillars: generating ideas, evaluating, knowledge and making.

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!
