- Learn new skills through participation in fun and effective hands-on art activities
- Gain fresh ideas for delivering arts-based lessons back in the classroom
- Develop confidence for exploring your own creativity
- Increase arts knowledge and the work of artists
Please contact us for more information or to arrange a meeting.
During a project on Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ with our key stage 1 classes, we asked Artbase to inspire us with some mystical art – and they didn’t disappoint! Georgie and Beth tailored the workshop to the age of the children and, focusing on the dream section of the story, encouraged the students to produce fantastically intricate and detailed masks in watercolours. Working with three classes across the day, they brought all the materials needed into school and cleared away afterwards. It wasn’t only the children who learnt something during their visit – the staff were also inspired and the watercolours have been in high demand ever since. I have noticed a vast improvement in my teaching of artistic skills and the outcomes of pupil work. I would highly recommend Artbase for schools – we are hoping to see Georgie and Beth again soon for a staff CPD session!Bidford on Avon Primary School, July 2014
