Do you have an arts week coming up?
We love bringing our many art workshops to schools around the South West. We have a range of art workshops to choose from and can even plan a bespoke art workshop based on your school's topic or curriculum needs for that term. We can either work with one group of students or split the time 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!

"Our boys were raving about their comic strip workshops. They were so inspired and have been asking about you all week. Your sessions were well led, age- appropriate and highly enticing for the boys! The materials were varied, different to what we usually use and great for young children. You were flexible- which is amazing as well as very organised. The teachers and were thrilled with the experiences you gave the boys. Thank you again, I will definitely be recommending and using Go Sketch again in the future!"
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the GO SKETCH workshops. We didn't want the sessions to end. The children were mesmerised by Emma. You could definitely tell she used to be a teacher as she had great classroom management and the activity was pitched perfectly for the age and interest of the children. I loved the wide selection of high quality resources Emma brought with her for us to use. Emma was very dedicated and spent a lot of time preparing for each session. Thank you so much for travelling from Bristol to see us. Definitely would recommend GO SKETCH to other teachers for future art weeks.
"Emma has been to our school to run workshops during our art week for the past 3 years. The workshops are well run and the children thoroughly enjoy them. The workshops allow the children to be creative and develop their art skills. Thank you Emma for helping to make our arts week special."
This is a great art workshop for schools who would like a calming, mindful activity. Explore the beautiful art of many artists who use the Zendoodle technique. The Zendoodle technique involves creating intricate patterns with shapes to build an entire form. The method has proved to be very popular in recent years as it is very relaxing and highly addictive!
This workshop is great for collaborative working skills and team building! Select a theme and work in a group to create a huge painting/collage/mixed media piece of art. These are created on big canvas' or pieces of wood depending on your preference.
You get to keep the piece of art to display in your school or workplace.
This workshop explores the popular style of manga. Manga is a cartoon based drawing style that is used to
create graphic novels and comics in Japan. You can also see the style portrayed in many anime films such as 'Spirited Away' or 'Howl's Moving Castle'.
You will learn how to create your own Manga portrait in this popular school workshop.
This workshop explores the world of optical art using line to create the impression that the image is in fact 3D! Children get to design and create their own piece of optical art! There are lots of activities they can choose from! Draw a crazy tunnel, 3d hand, a ball that jumps out of the page or even a weaved paper piece. We can extend this for older children with more complicated illusions.
Collage and Mixed Media
Learn to paint with paper in this enjoyable workshop. We will look at various collage artists based around a theme of your choice. After learning techniques and gaining inspiration from example pieces of art, you will create your own collage or you can make it a team building exercise by creating a huge collage in groups!
