Students engage in art activity

Extra & cross-curricular

Enhance your curriculum offer through artist-led extra- and cross-curricular projects. 

Extra-curricular projects

Extra-curricular programmes provide a broad range of opportunities to enrich and enhance your existing curriculum. These can take the form of lunchtime or after school clubs, as well as holiday programmes.

Artists work with students to explore a variety of materials and techniques. Projects can be planned to be process or outcome based – always supporting students to develop their creative ideas and own lines of enquiry. 

Extra-curricular programmes enable students to work collaboratively with peers from other classes or year groups, and provide tailored opportunities for targeted learning groups.

“The students…were crying out to do a creative project as a group after lockdown and this project with Bow Arts gave them a perfect opportunity”

Cross-curricular projects

Use the arts as a tool for engagement and to reinforce curriculum content. 

Through our cross-curricular projects, artists explore your school subjects through innovative art programming, encouraging students to creatively access topics and strengthen understanding. 

Cross-curricular projects provide an exciting opportunity for collaboration between departments. All projects are tailored to school subjects and can be delivered through a chosen artistic medium, such as painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and more. 

“The use of art in such direct combination with another curriculum area was inspiring for me. It allowed for…more points of access for students with different interests and skills.”
