Opportunities for schools

After the past 18 months, staff and pupil wellbeing is top of the agenda for 2021-22. I am hoping that my workshops are something to get excited about doing; something to look forward to. Art can help us recover and reflect on what we've all been through. It has a big impact on our physical as well as mental health. Stress, anxiety and worry often manifest in a poorly tummy, aches and pains, fatigue and a rubbish night's sleep to name but a few. Regularly participating in creative pursuits gives us many benefits. Let me list some for you now:

  • Improve cognition and brain function

  • Develop self -awareness

  • Improve self-esteem with a sense of accomplishment

  • Increase coping and social skills

  • Emotional resilience and self-regulation

  • Self-reflection

  • Relaxation

  • Looking at things from a different point of view

  • Soothing, repetitive processes

  • Making someone you love something special

  • Sharing your journey with friends and loved ones

 

 

My staff CPD sessions offer staff the chance to relax and unwind with colleagues, whilst upskilling their art and creativity CPD. I offer workshops in mark making, painting, clay, printmaking, textiles, felt making, sketchbooks, paper construction/sculpture and collage. I also run sessions on classroom management for practical sessions, embedding art into your daily routines, arts award, curriculum development and more. Workshops vary in time length- some are an after school 1 or 2 hour workshop, some are a full day. I bring everything with me on the day and everyone has a pack of resources they can take straight into the classroom the very next day.

Examples of projects:

  • Illustration - Choose a book or artist as inspiration 

  • Exploring watercolours and colour theory

  • Sculpture

  • Printmaking

  • Textiles- hand sewing, patchwork, knitting, weaving

  • Collage

  • Graphic Design

  • Community projects with parents and carers

  • Competitions

  • Teacher CPD art and textiles, linking art to literacy, RE, Maths...and many more.

 

Make sure you scroll down and view past projects and workshops :-)

All of my workshop packages have a fixed tuition fee + materials costs depending on how many pupils participate etc... Each workshop is differentiated to suit the class theme/ topic, the skills focus of that particular key stage, and the individual needs of the children in that group. Enhanced DBS checks are available on request and public liability insurance.
