There are a number of ways we can work with schools to complement the art curriculum. We welcome pre-arranged visits by groups and can run bespoke taster sessions for children, young adults and adult learners either at our workshop or in a suitable space in a school/college environment. We can work with educational institutions to tailor-make project briefs which fulfill the necessary curricular criteria. We are also available to give illustrated talks about our work to interested groups.
