What is our customers say about us!
Marden Primary School ~ Nr. Tonbridge ~ "From the outset of making contact with Artists in Schools I was able to receive practical advice about organising to have an artist in residence; particularly regarding options in cost and meeting the schools needs. The artist was dynamic and friendly, inspiring adult and children alike. Our biggest sadness was that he couldn’t have stayed with us for another day to work with Reception and KS 1 children! ~ All children were able to participate and achieve success. Parents were invited to come to the hall after the school to see the children’s’ work. Many positive comments were received. Warmest thanks."
Little Heath School ~ Reading ~ “Sarah has prepared a thoughtful and relevant workshop which challenged the students and made them think differently about their art. Good value for money, and well organized from the initial enquiry. Thank you!”
Brookside Junior School Romford ~ “Maggie was very professional. The sculpture looks fab’! The children loved making it. I’d defiantly use this company again!”
Flamstead Primary School ~ St Albans ~ “From the beginning to end Artists in Schools provided a really helpful and efficient service and the workshop itself were fabulous.
