Our Creative Journey: Visual Art is an artist-led workshop for early years professionals, delivered through our core programme or through bespoke training tailored to the needs of your setting. 

This session will break down the concept that you need to be good at drawing in order to create visual art.

Visual art is about exploration and self-expression, offering exciting opportunities for even the youngest children to tell their own story, create something wonderful and develop a range of skills.

Develop your own confidence in creating visual art, taking a practical approach to incorporating techniques such as drawing, painting, collage, 3D and print into your setting day-to-day and explore the opportunities it can offer children.

This session will focus on:

  • Developing confidence through explorative drawing – look at the world in a different way, notice new things and explore different perspectives
  • Creating tools for visual art – beyond pencils, paint and paper
  • Mark-making – exploring children’s visual languages
  • Incorporating visual art into storytelling
  • Valuing the process of creating art and encouraging exploration
  • Developing a strategy for recording and presenting children’s everyday visual art creations to enhance engagement
