Primary Training Event for Art Subject Leads, ICT Leads, Non Specialist Teachers, Curriculum Leads and Senior Leaders

Guest Artist: Gareth Courage | Trainer: Andrew Fox

As part of the contemporary and popular BEP Art Subject Development training, the next and final segment of a 3-part series that will focus on the use of photography and digital media in the art curriculum and beyond. 

Part 1: We will be looking at how different forms of digital media are used in the ICT and art curriculum to support digital skills development and visual self expression/creativity at primary phase.

Part 2: Our special guest will be UK designer and illustrator Gareth Courage who will deliver a keynote on his very distinctive work in design and digital media, in both an educational and professional context. Gareth implements a blend of traditional collage use combined with photography, texture, digital art and typography in his work, and he will be showing teachers how he has successfully led projects in primary schools using these techniques to explore themes such as identity and pupil voice.

Part 3: Andrew Fox will deliver an in depth keynote on developing the use of photography in the primary art curriculum and beyond. This will be a comprehensive piece of training for teachers and will include a brief of history of the most powerful and influential moments in photography followed by a step by step guide to working with photography in your school from EYFS through to Year 6. Andrew will take you through specific projects he has led across the midland schools where you will be able to see the children’s work and see how each project was built and delivered both as a cross curricular medium but also as part of the art curriculum – this includes a step by step guide into turning your school library into a photo studio with the children. He will also be launching a Primary photography skills progression framework as part of this event and it looks like this will be a national first! 

Teachers will also be treated to a sneak peek of Andrew’s commercial work so bring your shades and expect jungles, swimming pools and fashion models!

This training will be PACKED FULL of learning and ideas for teachers and all attendees will receive post event PDF’s from Andrew Fox and Gareth Courage (including the photography skills progression framework). The training will be delivered on zoom using high definition apple keynote with lots to look at and so we recommend that attendees use a laptop size screen or larger to get the best out of the event.
