School Art Inset Workshops

Art Inset workshops training for teachers

Do you want a mindful, creative and practical inset day?

Would your teachers love more support when teaching Art & Design?

Would your Governors enjoy a relaxing team building art activity with your staff?

 

We love running inset training for primary teachers around the Southwest and beyond. We have a range of teacher training workshops to choose from and can even plan a bespoke workshop based on your school’s topic or curriculum needs for that term.

We can:

  • provide an after school workshop with your staff after school
  • provide a workshop as part of an inset day
  • come and work with a group of teachers to help plan a particular topic.

Alternatively, show your staff and governors just how creative you can be with a unique team building session! 

The founder of GO SKETCH, Emma Shannon, is a specialist art teacher as well as being a qualified primary teacher which a good understanding of the school environment. We 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!
