"I believe I have seen a genuine correlation between children involved in the ARTiculate workshops and target children making Age Related Expectation (ARE)...Every child benefited with progress, clearly evident in their school books."
Simon, Y4 Teacher, Leeds

"Raised pupil's writing by at least 1 sub-level - developed their ability to apply knowledge. Hopefully we will see ARTiculate in our school again!"
Andrew Howdle, Literacy Coordinator

"Very inspirational and creative - lots of new ideas to improve writing and unlock children's imaginations."
Nadia, Year 4 teacher

New Gifted and Talented masterclass





We are delighted to announce the launch of a new workshop aimed at inspiring GIFTED and TALENTED children to independent and challenging collaborative work.


The 6 part workshop called 'Through the Magic Mirror' is built around the fantastic book of the same name by Anthony Browne. With it's deceptively simple story and the surreal illustrations, this is the ideal starting point to get talented children thinking.


Created specifically for Gifted and Talented groups, this masterclass is designed to encourage:

  • Imaginative discussion. 
  • Collaboration and independent project work.
  • Creative writing and the skills needed for high quality art.
  • Freedom to think differently.

In this workshop, children will:

  • Write, edit and present a piece of structured writing.
  • Create pieces of high quality art work.
  • Explore creative processes of authors, artists and illustrators.
  • Develop confidence, interpersonal skills and enjoy themselves.

Articulate education - launches SEPTEMBER 2014!

Want to open young minds to creative thinking? How about creative 'doing'? Even better, what about creative 'being'!? 

Asking learners to be creative is one thing, but teaching them to think, act and be creative is quite another. The ARTiculate project draws together literature, drama and the arts to show children that the creative processes behind writing, being artistic and performing are very similar. Once learned they can show a learner how to dance the steps of creativity, unlocking their potential and removing barriers of fear and lack of confidence.  

Take a look around this blog to see how ARTiculate can help your child, class or school do just that!
