Walk into a Primary classroom, and it’s likely that one of the first things you’ll notice is a beautiful selection of artwork on the walls. As teachers, we share art with children as a means of cultivating their appreciation of beauty, offering them cultural stories, and inspiring their imagination. It’s crucial, therefore, that the artwork in our classrooms is dynamic and diverse, and that we are successful in encouraging children to engage with it. In this workshop, AMI Primary trainer, Jack Yu will discuss how we can introduce art history to children as a means of developing their self-expression, motor skills, and reflective thinking. Jack will share examples of his own art appreciation curriculum and participants will leave with new resources for creating classroom materials and engaging children through art.
