All teachers can be artists too!

ARTBASH comes into your school and facilitates a day or evening training to help you get the most out of creative teaching with your classes. Not all of us feel comfortable executing an art lesson and often those of us who struggle, shy away from overseeing art in the classroom. We also know that the power of art-making has a tremendous effect on children. It allows children to explore literacy, numeracy, problem-solving and a whole host of other skills in a completely active and informal manner. In many cases raising attainment levels – especially across Key Stages One and Two. In turn, a day of making art, at an INSET, helps to relieve tension and generates opportunities to reflect not usually afforded the day-to-day lives of busy teachers.
