What teachers say

“It's fun and inspiring and you leave with plenty of ideas that you want to action straight away. It's in no way intimidating – you won't feel judged on your own artistic ability.” Assistant Head Teacher, Essex

“As someone who is not confident in art, the course brought lots of enjoyment and was focused the creative process, not the end product.” Teacher, Islington

“There were so many opportunities to “have a go” and experiment in a really positive and encouraging environment. We covered so many great ideas that I know I will be able to use back at school. Everyone managed to produce artwork which was fun, impressive and different, regardless of ability or confidence level. Everyone left really keen to try out these skills at school and pass on knowledge to staff. The main think I will take away from today is every activity! Positivity and reassurance! A brilliant day! Thank you so much!” Teacher, Epsom
