School Arts Week Workshops

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!

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.
