dot-art Schools works with a wide range of artists to offer your school artist-led workshops, from one day to an entire project or arts week, in a variety of different techniques, media and subjects. All our workshops are delivered by experienced artists with full DBS clearance and public liability insurance, and can be tailored to meet your specific requirements.
How It Works We know that you may not have the time to search for reliable, professional and talented artists to work with your school. We have done the hard work for you and put together a range of one day, hands on sessions for your pupils to get creative. If you don’t see what you are looking for below, or would like a tailored session for a particular topic, activity or event, please get in touch - we are happy to help!
To mark our 10th birthday we have an optional theme of Protecting Our Environment. To support this we are offering a NEW Creativity in the Forest workshop from GROW Wellbeing. Details below.
dot-art Schools can also offer artist led INSET sessions for teachers and staff. Please get in touch for more details.
