The Art of Teaching Art at Michaela

Welcome to episode 2 of the Michaela Podcast. In this episode I interview Lizzie Speller, our head of Art. We discuss how we create a calm environment to teach Art and use direct instruction to provide all pupils with the skills needed to succeed in Art. Hear how we use pupils as Art Assistants to prevent time being wasted in lessons. If you are interested in finding out more about our approach to teaching Art please read this blog: http://mcsbrent.co.uk/michaela-art-blog-mastery-in-art/ Also look at our pupils work here: http://mcsbrent.co.uk/art/ The image for this episode was drawn by one of our year nine pupils.
