We bring illustrators to your classroom to teach subjects across the curriculum in fun, fresh and creative ways. Our sessions are tailored to your topic and support students’ confidence, creativity, communication, fine motor skills and wellbeing.

Our workshops are delivered in your classroom by professional illustrator-educators. They have been rated good or excellent by 100% of teachers for over a decade.

Our workshops are:

  • for all Primary stages from EYFS to KS2 and Secondary classes from KS3 to KS5
  • for all abilities including SEND and EAL
  • tailored to your topic, text, curriculum area or scheme of work

During workshops your students will:

  • use a range of techniques with specialist materials that we provide
  • be supported to make images their own way and reflect on the creative choices they make
  • be inspired by professional illustrators, and shown how to find out more about illustration
  • create outstanding outcomes that can be shared with your school community
