"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

Busy week!

Supply teaching offers me the chance to try out some interesting art ideas with children. Here are some great results from this week!


Exploding 3D shapes drawn on squared paper with Year 6.
Children marked out a vanishing point with an 'x'. They drew around a plastic 2D maths shape and then connected each angle back to the vanishing point.

As one child pointed out: it's like flying above skyscrapers!




Sketching and painting with Year 5
Free sketched images taken from famous art works and finished with acrylic inks and paint markers. The Lichtenstein is my favourite!
