Event description
Dr Anna Robb explores the importance of art and creativity for children and considers how this affects lessons and careers advice in schools

About this event

There is growing concern that creative subjects such as art, music and drama are being side-lined in schools in favour of other subjects. However, creative education is also seen as a crucial step in developing skills in young children. This is especially relevant in the city of Dundee, where skilled creative people support our growing creative industries.

So how do we make sure arts education is delivered in a way that benefits children’s development?

Join us as Dr Anna Robb from the University of Dundee, explores why it is important to include children when developing school lessons and careers advice for the future. This presentation will draw on research focused on young children’s experiences of visual art in the home, at school, and within in the local community. Anna will give examples of how our relationships with school subjects, such as art, inform our identities from an early age.
