Secondary Workshops – All the details
Our philosophy centres on creating workshops tailored to the needs of the students, teachers, and schools we work in. We come in and plan collaboratively with the classroom teacher and principal, honing each experience, so it meets the educational and creative needs of each class.
~ In order to book our artists, schools must have a minimum of two classes working with the same artist/art form.
~ Our workshops are typically three sessions per class, with the exception of media workshops, murals, installations, and some drama sessions which need more time.
~ Increasingly, schools are excited to have us create more extensive projects, occurring over time. Hosting an artist residency is a possibility.
Here are some sample workshops. This is not meant to act as a ‘menu’ of options, but rather, as a starting point so you can start to imagine the possibilities for your school.
