Workshops for Schools

I really enjoy running printmaking workshops for all children from primary school age upwards. I have over 12 years experience teaching art, design and textiles in school and I have fully enhanced DBS. I am happy to work with large or smaller groups and I can develop a project to suit your chosen theme or topic. Below are some photos of recent work in schools and some testimonials from teachers.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss me visiting your school.

 

 

Were you pleased with the outcome of the printing activities?

There was lots of talk generated, some really interesting art and the children used lots of different skills. Lauren Peevor Y3 Abbey Lane Primary

The completed pieces looked amazing and the children were (rightly) proud of their work. Paul Boulton Y3 Abbey Lane Primary

What aspect of the printing actives do you think was particularly successful?

Creating their individual printing board allowed the children to be as detailed as they dared. Some opted for a very simple design to print; whereas other, more able pupils created more elaborate designs. The completed results looked fantastic. Paul Boulton Y3 Abbey Lane Primary

Every child could access and benefit from an aspect of the workshop. Children used the artwork they were creating as a basis for many interesting discussions that wouldn’t necessarily come to light in our English lessons. Main comment from children was, “Is she coming back”. Thank you for a fantastic experience. Lauren Peevor Y3 Abbey Lane Primary

The collaborative nature of the printing was great for the kids and even those who usually find art challenging had the opportunity to succeed. They learned new skills from an expert too. Melissa Duncan Y3 Abbey Lane Primary
