Our schools workshop developers and facilitators each hold Masters degrees in Art History, focusing on both Western and non-Western art, and UK QTS for Modern Languages. They are experienced in both in arts education and Modern Languages teaching within the British National Curriculum.
Black History Month
During Black History Month 2014, we held three art workshops for schools and families in East London, focussing on masks and masquerade in West Africa.
The techniques of pottery, recycling and puppetry are widely used on the continent, including in contemporary art. The young people were given the opportunity to use these techniques and learn about the stories and traditions behind them. Facilitators encouraged awareness of the historical and sociological trajectories that link people across the globe, celebrating the diversity of the world around us.
