How a secondary school workshop works

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

“It was an absolute treat to have Kwame at Risedale. I visited the hall whilst our year 8s were drumming and I could see that they were loving it; totally losing themselves in the activity and having a great experience. School has been a very strange place since September due to COVID and it was great that we could offer this day of culture in a positive and safe way.”

Risedale Academy

“I would like to say a huge thank you to you and your colleague from myself and on behalf of Hounsdown School for delivering a session at our Citizenship Theme Day. Feedback was extremely positive from both students and staff and we cannot thank you enough for delivering such an active and engaging session. The students were overwhelmingly positive and staff really enjoyed themselves…. Looking forward to working with you in the future.”

Hounsdown School

All our school workshops aim to introduce positive views of Africa and challenge stereotypes. Activities are unifying, adapting to the differing abilities of those within the group.
