We’re just about to pilot a new CPD programme of seven after-school sessions aimed at teachers, TAs and other school workers who want inspiring ideas and access to new creative skills. ‘Art School’ will be all about building confidence and showing how you can help children achieve amazing results with simple materials and a bit of imagination. Experienced artist Jo Tyler will lead these first sessions which are taking place in close cooperation with the Southern Way Federation at Beechwood and Oakwood Primary schools.This is very much ‘non-scary’ art and will include topics such as making magic dream books with ‘no sew’ textile techniques (see photo), creating gorgeous quick and easy ceramics and finding out that you can draw!

We’ll be advertising Art School programmes in the New Year and will be contacting all schools and children’s centres in Plymouth and the local area with details of how they can get involved.
