We are delighted to announce that we have launched our digital art portal, Art Time Let’s Shine, to help keep art on the Primary school curriculum.
Art Time, Let’s Shine provides Art & Design lessons to help non specialist Primary teachers deliver high end art lessons to their pupils taught by a fully qualified Art and Design teacher, at the click of a button.
The portal gives teachers the opportunity to keep art on their class timetable with no pressure on them as teachers to create new art lessons or deliver them. They do not have to worry about teaching art in front of their pupils or have to learn how to draw, paint, or make. The pupils watch the Art lesson their teacher has selected on the white board and follow the instructions step by step. The teacher can stop, pause, rewind, fast forward to suit the skill and ability level of the class. Art Time Let’s Shine has 40 classes that are offered as part of the digital package.
As a fully qualified Art and Design teacher I know “Many teachers don’t teach art in their classrooms because they are not confident in their own creative ability and lack the flare and passion for art to confidently deliver quality classes”.
‘This resource will equip pupils and teachers alike with creative skills and confidence that will ensure the creative output of the classes is celebrated and grows. I have seen first-hand how art empowers a child, harnesses growth, and enables them to improve their mental wellbeing. It provides escapism. I am extremely passionate about encouraging arts is accessible for all and deliver in a way that caters for all learning abilities. Lessons are structured consisting of themes on the national curriculum.’

The portal is an excellent way of ensuring that our teaching staff are able to deliver effective art lessons across the curriculum. It is child centred and very easy for the children to follow. With so many lessons available, the portal can be used throughout both KS1 and KS2, with great links with our various WAU topics.
