I am an freelance artist available for art workshops in and around the Greater London area in Primary Schools. I can get involved in your schools Book week, Cultural weeks, Environment week or Historical weeks. Whatever your theme I can come up with a creative workshop tailored for your pupils age, ability and school topic.
I have a range of arts and creative workshops for Primary Schools Key stage 1 and 2. I can meet you on site if you have a school trip or come directly to your school. I offer arts activities that cover skills outlined in the National Curriculum for years 1 to 6. I often work with schools 1-2-1 to design workshops and days that suit their current topic or theme week. Popular workshops I provide for schools include large scale collaborative murals, recycled arts pieces, graffiti work, sculpture, painting and craft work, with any school topic you want to have an arts spin on!
In my workshops the students will cover a variety of modern and historical artists, architects and designers who employ similar methods in their practice. I also integrate some of my own work throughout the day to show what kinds of projects some artists get up to now. All workshops are inclusive for students of all abilities. I am also available to hire for school trips, 1-2-1 art tutoring and staff inset days.
“Jenny came to our school to work with our year 2 children. She ran a series of workshops to link in with our London topic. She was fantastic with the children, her activities were perfectly pitched and she considered the age of the children. The work produced was vibrant, exciting and colourful and gave the children a great opportunity to be creative. Jenny was very professional and great to work with. We will definitely use her again.” – Hannah Gallagher, year 2 teacher at Dovers Green Infant School.
“The art session that we did with Jenny was fantastic. Her enthusiasm kept the children interested throughout and she modelled howto sketch very well before the children then had a go. It rounded off a wonderful London topic to meet Jenny and sketch some iconic London landmarks with her.”
– Brad Howarth, Year 6 Yeacher, Wylye Valley School
“It has been a pleasure having Jenny work with our pupils over the past two days to sketch out and paint our library’s book bench… The children who helped to design and paint the bench are so pleased with the result and grateful to Jenny for bringing their design to life.” – Roseanne Sparkes, Librarian, Broadford Primary School.
