Artists in Schools residencies embed art in the curriculum and assist teachers in providing creative sessions in the classroom and gallery environment. Artists work with pupils to develop their creativity and expression and allow them to explore what it is to be an artist and develop their own artistic skills. In addition, the programme provides professional development opportunities for teachers and can increase pupil’s creativity and self-confidence.
Comic artist Jim Medway observes and captures people as unique characters, to create witty portraits and imaginative stories. Jim will bring his techniques into school to help pupils' create profiles and drawings for characters they can develop into stories. Working individually and collaboratively, visual literacy and communication skills will be developed through a series of drawing tasks, games and discussions to share the characters pupils have created.
