Outreach

Our popular outreach programme for primary schools in London gives pupils the opportunity to take part in an in-depth project with a fabulous outcome.

“It’s a self contained package with high quality end results: something children can be proud of.”
- KS2 Teacher, London

Our outreach programme provides schools with three days of professional illustration expertise and enables pupils to produce stunning illustrated results.

Working with two classes, our illustrator will meet with teachers to plan a bespoke project based on one of the options below. All were designed with teachers to support literacy, enhance creativity, provide cross-curricular and work-related-learning opportunities.

Suitable for Keys Stages 1 & 2, it can also be adapted for other education settings including SEND schools, FE colleges, supplementary schools and hospital schools. High quality teachers’ resources are included.

For more information download the two brief case studies below.
