The Book

The Book Teaching Primary Art and Design is available to buy via Bloomsbury Curriculum Basics and in selected bookstores such as Tate Modern.

Teaching Primary Art and Design extends the National Curriculum requirements for art and design and provides a framework for teaching the five main skills for making art: drawing, painting, collage, printing and sculpture. Through carefully planned lesson frameworks and additional online resources, pupils can explore ideas and express their skills visually and verbally using subject-specific vocabulary.

From resourcing and planning to teaching lessons, this all-in-one guide includes a full-colour plate section of famous artworks are cross-curricular reference links. It is ideal for you and your class to embrace the world of art and design.


BBC Teach

Emily worked as the primary art and design consultant on these four short films for BBC Teach. They have been designed to help children make links between the real world of art and creativity in industries – cake, fashion, product design and animation. Each film features a ‘master’ showcasing a skill in their place of work, a group of primary aged children making a more child-friendly version and a challenge for your children.
