Help need for new subject co-ordinator - Art

Discussion in 'Art and design' started by latinaid, May 6, 2011.

  1. I'm probably going to come across as really dumb here, but this year I have been given the role of Art co-ordinator (along with DT - but that's another story!), and one of the areas I'm supposed to look at is increasing the chances for the children (KS2) to experience art from other cultures. Can anyone offer any help? Any useful websites? Anyone had this as a focus at their school and can pass on any tips? I feel completely at sea with this, especially as Art is my second-least-favourite subject. (My least favourite? DT!)
     
  2. I agree with "art". The NSEAD is first class. John Bowden wrote a series of articles in their magazine START on the role of art subject leader which they have published in book form. It's on their website www.nsead.org

    I have put some materials related to multicultural work in the Art pages on Bucks Grid for Learning. See under resources lower down the page (here is the link http://www.bucksgfl.org.uk/course/view.php?id=14 ).

    I think the recent publication Art Express is a really useful resource for new art co-ordinators. It contains a full scheme of work but more importantly it is very clear about techniques and provides lots of images and resources on CD. I do like the virtual gallery but I should declare an interest as I was involved on the editorial board as it was developed.

    Hope this is helpful
