Tees Valley Twilight: Visual Art for Creativity


This session is an opportunity to enhance your art skills, gain confidence and insight and learn new approaches for developing creativity in your teaching.

Participants will use playful, practical activities using a range of media to explore some of the current thinking around the development of children's habits of creative thinking through visual arts and the importance of this across the Curriculum Subjects – linking theory to practice. There will also be opportunities to share practice with the other teachers at the session.

Sara Calgie, who will lead this session, is a former Creative Practitioner turned Primary Teacher, who now manages The Start Studio and dedicates her practice to raising the value of art and creativity in schools.

Refreshments will be served on arrival and during a comfort break.
