Art in the Primary School: Creating Art in the Real and the Digital World

Jean Edwards, Helen Caldwell, Rebecca Heaton

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    Art in the Primary School is an introductory textbook, and a second edition to Teaching Primary Art, exploring the underpinning philosophy and pedagogy of teaching and learning art, including how and why digital tools and technologies can be integrated.

    This book considers practical aspects of teaching art, focusing on key processes of art making that children might experience in primary schools. It is based around the idea that digital tools and technologies can and should be integrated into the learning and teaching of art, exploring:

    What art is like in the primary school, why it should be taught and what is included in the curriculum
    How learning is planned, assessed, taught and supported in the classroom
    Learning about and from artists and how digital technology can be part of the art curriculum
    Key processes such as drawing, painting, printmaking, collage and textiles, working in three dimensions and making digital art
    Uniquely incorporating the use of digital devices, tools and technologies into the subject of art, this book will be essential reading for those training to teach and support learning in art in the primary school.
