Do you have an arts week coming up?
We will plan a bespoke art morning based on your school's topic or curriculum needs for that term. We can either work with one group of students all morning or split the morning into sessions with different groups. We can also come in over a few days if you would like us to work with the whole school (multiple booking discounts available). Alternatively, show your staff and governors just how creative you can be with a unique team building or INSET session!
GO SKETCH teachers are art specialists and are fully insured and DBS checked. All art resources are supplied by us. All you need to do is supply a work space and away we go!
