Description

Early Years Art and Design & Museum Education CPD: developing good teaching and learning

Tower Hamlets based colleagues, funded by Tower Hamlets Arts and Music Education Service

THAMES (Tower Hamlets Arts and Music Education Service) in conjunction with the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green is offering an inspiring and practical full-day course for developing good teaching and learning in art and design using museum collections.

The course aims to share with teachers some great ideas and effective strategies for engaging children with museum objects and getting the most from a class visit to a gallery or a museum.

Lead by a primary art and design specialist and an expert in primary and early years museum education, the course will focus principally on art and design but also make connections with several other curriculum areas. Teachers will make and use sketchbooks to record and develop ideas and will explore several techniques and processes including drawing, printmaking and more. A chance to develop skills for future class museum visits, teachers will be shown how to get the most out of museum collections to develop children’s engagement, skills and confidence. Easily accessible for Tower Hamlets schools and with great facilities for class visits, the Museum of Childhood has much to offer across many areas of the curriculum. Taking inspiration from its extraordinary collection of toys, games, dolls houses, costume and other childhood-related objects, this course will allow teachers to make connections relevant to the interests of their individual schools and to develop useful strategies that they can use in this or other museum venues. The course will suit art and design coordinators wishing to improve subject teaching and learning and class teachers keen to enrich children’s learning through meaningful museum experiences.
