Skills based

Our artists work with your students to develop skills, techniques and understanding of a specific artform. 

Skills based projects are tailored to your school priorities and aims. They can explore any desired medium including drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, and more, working with an artist who is an expert in this area.

Skills based programmes can be standalone projects or can be used to explore topics to enhance subjects and support cross-curricular learning. 

“The level of attainment was WELL above and beyond KS1.”

Topic based

Use the arts as a tool for engagement and to reinforce curriculum content through topic-based arts projects. Artists work to explore your school subjects or topics through exciting arts programming. 

All projects are tailored to school subjects or topics, and can be delivered through a chosen artistic medium, such as painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and more. Project lengths can vary depending on aims and number of classes. Session lengths and frequency is flexible and can be decided by the school and artist.

“The project gave us different approaches to teaching Black History.”
