How a primary school
How do we timetable?
Our team will work with you to get the best outcome to reach your objectives.
A session can be from 7 separate classes a day or we can work intensively with one class.
How Many Students?
As standard we work with a class at a time, if you have space we are happy to work with 2 classes at a time (or up to 60 students) in your hall or larger room.
Maximum – 7 workshops or up to 420 students in a day with one art activity.
How Long is a Class?
We recommend classes of 60 minutes, though 40 is possible.
We are very happy to work on longer more in depth projects and instillations, as an artist in residence, or simply by working with one class for a full day.
Can We Mix Activities?
Depending on the practitioner available you may mix in as many activities as you have time for. There is no additional charge for this so why not follow an arty morning with a musical afternoon?
What Do You Need?
Very Little! We will bring all of the materials with us for your workshop. The exception to this is recycling. We can bring materials but we feel the collection is a valuable part of the process for the children
How Much is it?
Options run from 50p – £16 per student. Please fill out our quick quote form and we will get right back to you with a proposal.
