Escape delivers practical based workshops in line with the current National Curriculum.  As we have a team of experienced artist practitioners with their own specialisms, we are well placed to help your KS1 pupils ‘use materials creatively to design and make products’ as well as help your KS2 pupils to have ‘an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design’.

We can tailor projects to meet your objectives ensuring effective delivery in terms of communication, resources and organisation.  We provide plans to ensure smooth and effective running of the project and provide documentation of all stages of delivery.
