ABOUT THIS COURSE

This new course practically based course is aimed for all teachers of Art & Design looking for new ways to support and maximise lower ability students’ achievement, regardless of examination board.

There will be focus on ways to develop the weaker A Level Art & Design student, how to motivate reluctant learners, and ways to stimulate and develop creative ideas appropriate for them. The course will also demonstrate how to avoid common pitfalls and break through barriers instigated by reluctant learners.

There will also be focus on these common issues amongst lower ability students – many Art & Design students  are unable or unwilling to get started from starting points, jump from one unrelated idea to the next, expect  the teacher to make choices about the direction of their work with little intention of their own, selecting creative ideas beyond their strengths, lacking skill with the correct way to use drawing for a role or a purpose, and see annotation as an area of failure before they even begin their work!
