I believe that it is important for children to have the opportunity to explore their artistic creativity in the classroom, and learning some simple techniques can give them the confidence to produce some amazing artwork. Often, after one of my workshops, children are inspired to keep painting and drawing at home.
I am available to visit local schools for art workshops and fun art activities and these can be linked in with the National Curriculum. It is also worth considering use of Pupil Premium funding (i.e. poppy painting with children of service families for Remembrance Day)
My fee of £150 per day (or £90 for a half day) includes - in addition to a full day in the classroom - planning, pre-lesson meeting with teacher(s) as required and helping to clear up! It does not include the cost of materials which the school will need to supply.
