Aimed at non-specialist primary teachers, this book offers support for the two attainment targets of the national cuuriculum in art: investigating and making, and knowledge and understanding. It uses examples and materials to explore various areas of children's development in art making and understanding, and also aims to equip teachers with strategies for developing their own understanding and appreciation of the subject. Units included cover such areas as:
* children's motivation to make art
* developing co-operative work with artists in schools
* learning about art from other cultures
* learning about art from different historical periods
* 2D and 3D art
* assessing children's art
