Our school art galleries
bring the community together,
giving staff, pupils and their families
a space to meet in, themes to relate on
and an outcome to be proud of.
“Pupils have accessed the history curriculum in such a remarkable way through this project.
The results are stunning. I can’t believe that they are not genuine items from the British Museum. Just Magnificent.”
Norma Hewins. Head, Jubilee primary
“It has been lovely having you work with the children and staff in Years 3 and 4.
All the staff have commented (positively) on the quality of the artwork and how professional it looks.”
Wayne Pedro. Head, John Perry Primary

We create art galleries in schools
showcasing students as the celebrated artists.
We offer a creative partnership with SMT’s and teaching staff in the design of an exhibition space and the curation of an opening show. We devise and deliver exciting art sessions across all year groups which get the best out of children’s creative talents. We prepare children’s exhibits for display, ensuring their clean presentation and strong visual impact.
We aim to enhance the internal space of a school through imaginative use of design whilst adding cultural capital to it’s identity. By positioning students at the heart of this environment, we elevate their creative achievements, endorse their skills / knowledege and offer an aspirational platform for other students to follow.
Collectively, pupil’s art pieces become a purposeful mode of visual story telling with transferable educational values for the wider school community and visitors to enjoy. Our school art galleries bring the community together, giving staff, pupils and their families a space to meet in, themes to relate on and an outcome to be proud of.
About the activities
Many of our projects contextualise the curriculum such as history and geography topics through visual art.
Schools have requested we design projects which link with their particular ethos or values. Others wish to look at a specific artist, movement or period of art history.
In each case, we design a programme of art sessions which offer a broad range of art techniques and resources that inspire and inform children’s learning on both visual literacy and the wider comprehension of diverse concepts. Understanding is made more accessible through hands-on making and problem solving.
EYFS / KS1 / KS2 (secondary schools / adult ed, please enquire)
As each partnership is unique and each project bespoke – So too is the budget. Prices depend on the number of art sessions / classes we are requested to work with and the scale of the final outcome.
As a first point of contact, we recommmend a meeting to share thoughts and ideas. Our prices run in line with Arts Council standards for artsist’s daily rates in accordance with our 8+ years experience in art ed and 20+ years as professional arts practitioners. Contact us to find out more…
School Staff say:
“Pupils have accessed the history curriculum in such a remarkable way through this project. The results are stunning. I have to continually look closely at the artwork because I can’t believe that they are not genuine items from the British Museum. Just Magnificent.”
“THANKYOU for everything… ‘The hall of dreams’ project, working with architects, etc it has been like you were a real part of Ambler… it’s been a blast! Hoping we can raise some more money and do another project with you soon.”
(The project went on to be shortlisted for Saatchi Gallery Art Prize for Schools 2017)
“The hall has made such a difference to lunchtimes – it’s so much calmer. We think it’s amazing.”
“It has been lovely having you work with the children and staff in Years 3 and 4. All the staff have commented (positively) on the quality of the artwork and how professional it looks. We would love to work with you again in the future.”
