Teaching Art Creatively is packed with ideas and inspiration to enrich teachers' knowledge and understanding of art and design in the primary classroom. It is underpinned by the latest research and theory, with contemporary practice at the forefront. Expert authors focus on diverse approaches that start with children's own ideas about themselves as artists.

With an emphasis on recognising the value of children's art and how to support children's creative and artistic processes, key topics explored include:

Improving your own creativity, competence and confidence

Helping children become independent artists

Starting points and imaginative contexts for art and design

Individual, group and whole class work

Art inside and outside the classroom

How to develop visual literacy

The value of working alongside artists

The contribution of art and design to children's overall creative development.

Teaching Art Creatively offers a new model of visual arts education in the primary years. Illustrated throughout with examples of exciting projects, children's work and case studies of good practice, it will be essential reading for every professional who wishes to embed creative approaches to teaching in their classroom.
