An immersive day of practical inspiration for primary school teachers.

When, Where

Discover a range of illustration activities you can build into your lesson planning and teaching on our immersive, accessible and affordable primary CPD day, recommended by 100% of previous attendees.

Our unique approach to education provides practical skills, fresh ideas and new approaches you can use straight away in the classroom. Get inspired by our exhibitions, collaborate with your peers in a friendly and fun environment and learn how illustration can enhance your teaching across every subject in the curriculum and help approach learning in new and creative ways.

Our illustration activities enable pupils to:

  • Develop cultural capital
  • Embed learning in all subjects
  • Increase confidence, resilience and independence
  • Develop art skills and creativity
  • Take pride in their achievements
  • Support wellbeing

This CPD is designed to empower every kind of primary educator, whether classroom teacher, subject co-ordinator or senior leader, and is especially suited for those who think they can’t draw!

Delivered by experts: Head of Education Emily Jost and professional illustrator Toya Walker, both with over ten years’ experience building and developing House of Illustration’s pioneering learning programme.
