Drawing can be a daunting task for many children, so it is vitally important that their first experiences are filled with awe, wonder and a good sprinkling of fun.
Drawing can link to many parts of the curriculum or can be a standalone art lesson, where learners can develop a wide range of skills. Inspiration can come from the children’s imagination, or they can observe the world around them. In this session we’ll look at a wide range of ideas to develop drawing in Key Stage 1 linked to the Chinese Year of the Tiger, and the beloved children’s book, The Tiger Who Came to Tea.
