October is Big Draw Month with the Campaign for Drawing. To coincide with this Brilliant Publications have announced the launch of their new art series: ‘Painting is a Class Act’.
‘Painting is a Class Act’ follows on from Meg Fabian’s award-winning series ‘Drawing is a Class Act’. This series provides a structured approach to the development of painting skills at primary school level. With clearly laid-out plans these books can teach children a range of skills from the National Curriculum, including: art history, brush strokes, mixing colours, stencilling, and much more.
“We recognise the importance of developing an understanding of art for young children and these books help to make learning fun,” said Alison Marshall, Marketing Manager of Brilliant Publications at the launch.
The author, Meg Fabian, explains: “The aim of my books is to support non-specialist art teachers working in primary schools. They are intended to help teachers respond confidently to all those children who say: ‘I’m rubbish at drawing’. Few children in a school will become professional artists, but an appreciation of art and of colour is life-enhancing.”
Meg Fabian: ‘Drawing is a Class Act’ won the Global Learning Initiative Award for Best Curriculum Material at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.
Copies may be available for review by media outlets and bookshops.
