Artist in Focus

The Arts Team work with a number of artists who deliver a range of creative projects in schools.  Covering a range of art forms, the definition ‘artist’ includes people who draw, paint, sculpt, make films, build dens, garden, tell stories, perform poetry and that’s just for starters!

Bringing an artist into school can be a great opportunity for children and young people to work alongside a ‘real’ artist, giving them an insight into the professional art world.   By working with an artist, children and adults can explore the process of creating something new, inspired by the different perspective and approach an artist has.

The ‘Artist in Focus’ page is designed to showcase our artists.  Click on each artists thumbnail to see examples of their work, what they do in schools and what they get out of working with children and young people.
