Art & Craft for Secondary Schools and Colleges
Kwame is a graduate from the Ghannata College of Arts in Accra and went on to be the artist in residence at the Centre for National Culture in Ghana.
Now based in the UK and uniquely placed to take your pupils and students on a tour of Ghanaian arts and culture. Kwame works with galleries, schools, community groups and arts organisations as an artist educator. Bringing African art, recycled art workshops and community projects to schools, events and other venues. He has delivered the arts award in UK museums and has helped students create costumes, flocks of birds, African Villages, jewellery, pots and are sure together we can come up with something new that will be perfect for your students.
All our workshops are inclusive with focus on engaging every child.
Running a workshop
Let us know your learning objectives and desired outcomes for your secondary school we can work together to plan the best outcome for your school.
For junk modelling we will ask students to select specific items. For example, to make masks they will need to bring a milk bottle and newspapers and magazines.
For Adinkra there is a materials charge of £10 per class of 30.
What can we expect?
Kwame will introduce the context to each art form and provide a biography and overview of his art themes and messaging. Students will then be encouraged to get in touch with their own creativity and themes. The workshop will be though provoking and vibrant.
The kids were really buzzing after the workshops and every single one that I asked said they thought it was brilliant. I will definitely be recommending you to colleagues in other schools and hope that we can use you again.
The hurligham Academy
This was an absolutely fantastic and worthwhile experience for our students. The performance at the end of the day made them feel incredibly proud and confident - a brilliant day facilitated by the happiest workshop leaders I've ever worked with.
All of the students have had such a valuable experience, and we have had excellent feedback regarding your company. Kwame was evidently very experienced, and engaged with the students really well. He also worked with the school's agenda, and the day ran very smoothly. I hope that we will be able to work with you again next year.

Thanks so much for the workshops today. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. (Children and Adults!)
We love your passion and enthusiasm and we learnt so much from you about your culture. We will definitely be in touch about booking some more workshops next year.
We had an absolutely super morning with Kwame and team – they were so friendly and pitched the sessions at exactly the right level. The girls and staff had a super time!
