“The workshop has impacted students’ learning, giving a love for art for all children. This has been such a valuable experience for them!” Teacher, Outwood Junior Academy Brumby
Nearly all our workshops focus on artist Barbara Hepworth and her inspiration and artwork.
Our workshops support a broad and balanced curriculum and enhance student’s cultural capital. They link directly with the national curriculum and develop visual literacy and critical thinking through discussion.
