Description

Patterns, Rhythms and Marks

developing creativity through art and design in the early years

Tower Hamlets based staff


This very hands-on course will explore ways in which EYFS practitioners can develop themes of pattern, rhythm and mark-making, with art and design and the expressive arts and design area of learning as a focus. Practical sessions will enable colleagues to experience a range of individual and group activities involving different media and resources, to identify how these relate to the ages and stages of children and to structure activities with clear learning at their heart. Colleagues will work with pens, paint and collage materials on a large and small scale and will explore line, colour, shape and pattern.

As well as focusing on children’s creative development, many of the activities covered will address other areas of learning including Mathematics and Literacy, communication and language, and personal, social and emotional development. The course will include a brief introduction to the role of the teacher or practitioner in supporting children’s creative development and understanding and will allow colleagues to reflect on current practice and to take away with them a wealth of ideas for immediate use in their classrooms or settings.

Learning outcomes - participants will gain:

  • greater understanding of how to deliver some key art and design activities to help children understand concepts of line, pattern, colour and shape through the development of their creative skills;

  • awareness of how best to organise creative and enjoyable learning experiences within the setting or Reception classroom and to create an appropriate environment that will encourage children to progress as confident mark makers;

  • increased confidence to introduce a broader range of practices into their creative learning approaches.
