Arts

We are a small, dedicated team with many years’ experience of working with teachers, artists, children and young people.   We are committed to delivering and brokering high quality cultural learning opportunities across art, drama, dance, media, written and spoken word in order to:

  • raise achievement in and through the arts;
  • foster a sense of enjoyment and fulfilment in learning through the arts;
  • increase the numbers of children and young people actively participating in arts and cultural activity;
  • ensure the arts and cultural offer is high quality, dynamic and relevant.

The ArtForms Arts Development offer for 2020/21 includes: 

Support and guidance

This can be accessed through our subject leader support packages: the Primary Art Subject Leader Support Package and the Primary Design and Technology Subject Leader Support Package.  Meeting three times a year, the sessions will focus on whole school planning, progression and assessment.  For information about the content of each session, please click on the Subject Leader Support Package document

For schools who require bespoke support, we have a 2 day Curriculum Support in Arts Subjects package.   Please contact jane.zanzottera@leeds.gov.uk for further information about any aspect of our support and guidance. 

CPD and Training

We have a range of training and CPD courses, in and through the arts.   We can also deliver bespoke training in school as part of a staff meeting.  All training is booked through the Leeds for Learning website. 

Artist led workshops

This is a menu of workshops, where an artist works alongside pupils in school.  The projects are often linked to areas of the curriculum. We are currently in the process of developing some workshops which can be delivered virtually.
