Artists in Schools was established in 1998 and has many years of experience in successfully placing professional artists into schools and colleges to carry out tutoring workshops, as well as running CPD training and workshops for teachers, we also offer INSET workshop days in schools.

Operating mainly throughout London, the South East, East Anglia and the East and West Midlands regions we provide schools, colleges, museums and local authorities with an extensive register of professional artists who are willing and able to provide high-quality, ‘hands on’ workshops.

We also run a programme to supply artists to provide Planning, Preparation and Assessment (PPA) cover, which at the same time provides pupils with a regular weekly programme of art curriculum enrichment.

We specialize in tailoring workshops to suit individual requirements; whether you’re looking for a one-day workshop, an art week or a much longer-term residency, Artists in Schools can help. We offer at all key stages the opportunity to work with some of the best artists from across your region, working in a wide range of artistic fields.

All our artists are vetted and have supplied references.
