Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

This course will show how drawing and mark making can be an exciting, non-threatening activity and look at using drawing as a starting point for recording and experimentation.

Evidence underpinning this approach

The 2012 OFSTED report states that too few pupils develop their creativity through confident drawing. The report found that where pupils had good drawing skills this underpinned higher achievement in secondary school and post-16 education. This course focuses on developing strategies to increase student confidence and attainment by exploring a variety of new methods and techniques that will have an immediate impact on teaching and student success.
