An exploration of creativity within the primary classroom and a deep dive into appropriate art projects
About this course

Over two days of exploration of creativity within the Primary classroom, this exciting course is guaranteed to be hands-on, practical and, above all, lot of fun. The course isn't about teaching you how to be an artist (though it will certainly help with your artistic skills), it is about helping you to develop creativity in children. Hosted in a vibrant art studio, you will be guided through a range of approaches, skills and techniques to help you progress children's artistic and creative skills. 

Surrounded by inspirational art, created by Paron's pupils, you will leave the workshop buzzing with energy and ideas with a wide range of creative resources and exciting projects you can use with your classes. Paron is delighted to be hosting the course in his studio and looks forward to welcoming you. Nobody leaves his studio without a huge smile on their face. Productive and purposeful, fun is guaranteed.
