Barefoot holds a database of local artists who have experience of working in education settings. Professional artists bring not only their creative skills into your school or group, they also bring inspirational ideas, years of experience and often a whole new way of looking at the world. Children and young people gain massively from working with a professional artist and many people think the best arts CPD for teachers, TAs, early years and youth workers is assisting an artist as they work with their group.
Many of our artists now feature on our Artist Profiles pages. Just click the link on the left to see details of them and their work . All these artists and many more can be contacted via Barefoot. All artists who register with Barefoot must be CRB checked and have public liability insurance and references but if you wish to employ an artist working with children or vulnerable adults, please check their details are up-to-date and ask for references.
If you would like to book an artist or need any further information or advice please contact us. If your arts ideas don't match anything you see here don't be alarmed. We pride ourselves on finding the right artist for the job and beyond our own database have links right across the SW region.
