Secondary Artists in Schools


Artists in Schools residencies help students and teachers explore the creative process, share ideas and develop their artistic practice. The students are encouraged to form and express opinions and responses to artworks in the classroom and on a visit to Manchester Art Gallery.

The students develop skills as independent learners through enquiry-based learning and critical and reflective thinking. They also gained first-hand experience of the creative industries through working with professional artists. The work they produce documents the students’ artistic journeys as they develop emotional and visual language, take artistic risks, gain confidence and enjoy the creative process.

Residency option

Harriet will help you develop skills in creating images using a portable darkroom, in a session that can be adapted to different themes and topics. Students will produce photograms to capture objects and experiment with mixed media techniques that can be used to support coursework development.
