Pride of Stratford Educators of the Year 2018
Escape Arts has over 20 years experience of delivering successful, innovative creative workshops and educational creative heritage workshops in schools. We pride ourselves on professional, bespoke projects which aim to inspire creative thinking and support curriculum studies.
Escape Arts 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. Please see our Schools Information Brochure.
We also offer multi-media after schools clubs, find out more here.
