Art skills for teachers launched


Above: Art skills for teachers

Simple yet highly effective art and craft techniques that non specialist teachers can feel confident at trying in the classroom

The Art skills for teachers resource is a website that has been created by the Ben Uri Gallery to support the teaching of Art and Design. It is targeted at the non specialist. It aims to offer simple, yet highly effective, ideas and techniques that both teachers and children can feel confident at trying both at school and at home.

The ideas and techniques can be used to create artworks in response to the Ben Uri Teaching Resources produced by the London Grid for Learning, A Sense of Place, Relationships and Movement – however their application can occur across many and varied contexts in the Primary and  Secondary classroom.

A video case study filmed at Richard Cobden school In Camden shows the impact of using the Ben Uri Art resources and explains how the resources can be used in a range of Key Stages.

  • The resource features an image viewer that is designed to allow teachers to move an image around freely on an interactive whiteboard display
  • All the resources are available for .pdf download
  • All pages in the online book interface have unique web addresses so that links from other resources (such as the London MLE) can be created
