Artists in Schools

Bringing an artist into your classroom can inspire and engage your students and provide teachers with the opportunity for ‘on the job’ training in a particular art form or creative approach.

These local artists have created interesting and imaginative workshops which enhance the curriculum. If you are planning to work with an artist, you will need to ensure they have an up to date, enhanced DBS and public liability insurance. It is also good practice to have a contract, so that both parties are clear what is expected of them. IVE have put together a six step guide to working with an artist in your school to ensure you get the most out of the experience. 

Through our newsletter, we share examples of artists working in schools, so please get in touch if you would like your school to be featured.
