To increase practitioners knowledge of how to teach drawing skills from EYFS to Key Stage Two


A practical workshop focused on developing practitioners’ own drawing skills and techniques that can then be translated back in to practice in the classroom from EYFS to Key Stage Two. This session will include input from experienced artist/illustrator, Jo Blaker, who will share her passion for drawing and creativity and a range of exciting techniques to teach to children. Jo is well known for delivering inspirational projects and workshops for all ages and organisations, including Hepworth Wakefield and YSP.

Sharing of a exemplar progression of skills ladder for drawing, that can support practitioner’s thinking and help to shape elements of drawing curriculum in school.
