Drama and Art

A group of children looking at a painting
ages 4-11

The aim of this resource collection is to show how drama techniques can support the exploration and understanding of paintings.

The theory behind the drama and art approach is shown in the video below, followed by five modelled examples of how to use the various drama techniques.

This exciting project was designed and facilitated by specialist teacher and university professor David Allen.
