Schools enrichment

In education, creativity is as important as literacy and we should treat it with the same status.’

Ken Robinson ‘Bring on the Learning Revolution’ TED talk 2010


What We Do

These sessions connect student-centred learning with the expertise of a professional artist.  Working with a range of materials, the group is guided in explorations in drawing, painting and collage. Working as a whole class, in small groups and individually, we have fun building creative confidence, expanding our expressive language and creating some lovely artwork to take away.

Sessions can be comfortably adapted to any curriculum-based topic.

Who for

Groups of up to 30 students in Primary or Secondary education

Where

With you wherever you are or at Arts Lab on the Dartington Hall estate in rural Devon. When the weather’s fine, the Dartington gardens and the river Dart are on our doorstep for inspiration.
