Involving Art Techniques with your school. 

To facilitate a project for your school for a special event or on-going projects is very straight forward. Take a look at what interests you on this web site and then either call, email or fill out your details on the site contact page. We can answer your questions and help you with planning. We will plan a programme to suit your needs, for groups, classes or all chosen classes within your school. Inclusion and engagement projects are available. Your brief will inform us of the role we play, the duration of the project and your chosen outcomes.

With you we plan a clear achievable brief to bring hands on creative learning into the class room. We link this to Key stage 1 and  2 ‘Developing progression in art and design skills and techniques’ curriculum guidance. (Downloadable on the Art and Design Techniques page).

We specialise in a wide mixture of practical visual arts. We take the pain out of the organisation. We provide resources, equipment, knowledge and experience in a friendly professional manner. We will list for you the required materials to order, saving you vat costs.  If you require us to order your materials the vat and administration costs will be added.

Take a look at the individual techniques pages.  They are packed full of images of work created by children involved in hundreds of projects with Art Techniques over the years.

Evaluation is on-going. You will be asked to evaluate as standard practice. Our evaluations and testimonials reflect a very high level of satisfaction recorded over many years by  staff, pupils and if required parents. Evaluations keep the service informed with valuable feedback from you which we can act upon to keep standards high.
