LEAP THEN LOOK


PRIMARY

We offer a variety of engaging workshops and projects for primary school children. These range from one-off skills and process sessions to longer terms projects creating exhibitions, performances, and permanent artworks. Our workshops offer children the opportunity to explore new materials and ways of working, supporting them to produce their own art work as well as learning to ask challenging questions and to take risks. We often combine disciplines including performance, photography, sculpture, video, prop and costume making, installation, mark making and drawing. We always encourage team work and critical thinking. Our aim is to offer children experiences through which they can produce their own learning and continue to be inspired to create art for life.

Inspiring artist-led INSET and continuing professional development

We can give presentations and lead practical workshops and discussions with teachers aimed at developing different aspects of the schools creative offer. This may range from practical advice and skills in creating high quality documentation, introduction to new art processes, to creative and child-centred ways of working. We can also help your staff chart their engagement with creative teaching methods and develop future goals and aspirations.
