Curriculum enrichment in schools
Primary and secondary school groups interested in learning over and above the ordinary level of making art – I aim to help you create work unique to you by creating an experience altogether more meaningful and rewarding. You don’t have to be an expert in drawing or painting, rather, someone who has enthusiasm for the subject with aspirations to develop your creativity.
At your school or as a day trip to Arts Lab in Dartington or a local police of interest e.g. Buckfast Butterfly Farm, Dartmoor, the coast; in a gallery
‘We’ve sold ourselves into a fast food model of education’ says Ken Robinson, ‘and it’s impoverishing our spirits and our energies as much as fast food is depleting our physical bodies.’ (We) ‘become frightened of being wrong. We stigmatise mistakes’, says Robinson. ‘The result is we are educating people OUT of their creative capacities. We don’t grow INTO creativity, we grow OUT of it …. or rather, we get educated out of it.’
